BIDEN: ‘MORE THAN ONE AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN’ BEING CONSIDERED FOR VP
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that more than one African American woman is being considered to be his running mate.
Biden shared the detail during an interview on MSNBC as host Craig Melvin pressed him about renewed speculation about who might be his No. 2 on the Democratic ticket.
Melvin questioned whether demonstrations in Minneapolis and other cities across the country protesting police-involved deaths of unarmed black people were influencing Biden’s decision.
“I have already said I’m going to pick a Supreme Court justice who is a woman of color. I have already said my Cabinet will be full of people of — women of color, men and women of color. And I also already said that there are women of color under consideration,” Biden said in the interview.
