After Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the presidential race, MadameNoire came up with our own list of powerful political women who we thought might make a good Vice Presidential candidate, for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
While Biden has been called on to name a woman as his running mate, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was revealed as one of the many candidates the Biden campaign is vetting.
Prior to Demings and Bottoms being revealed as a possible pick, Biden has flirted with the idea of other nominees, most recently, Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
Names like Sen. Kamala Harris, a former rival of Biden’s on the presidential campaign trail, and political organizer Stacey Abrams, have all been mentioned as possible candidates to go under the vetting process.
During a March debate, Biden said he would commit to picking a woman, but would not commit to only picking a Black woman, or a non-Black woman of color.
