Biden Advised To Pick An African American Woman For VP

House Majority Whip James Clyburn said he wants former Vice President Joe Biden to choose an African American woman as his running mate if he receives the Democratic nomination.

“I really believe that we’ve reached a point in this country where African American women need to be rewarded for the loyalty that they’ve given to this party,” Clyburn told NPR.

“So I would really be pushing for an African American female to go on the ticket,” Clyburn added.

Clyburn, a senior congressman from South Carolina, endorsed Biden in the lead-up to the primary in South Carolina, a state that the former vice president went on to win at nearly 49%.

Clyburn named several African American women politicians who he believes could be potential vice president picks for Biden, including California Sen. Kamala Harris and Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee and voting rights activist Stacey Abrams.

Clyburn also referenced Reps. Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Val Demings of Florida and Karen Bass of California as potential choices, as well as Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

Biden has previously indicated that he could choose a woman as his running mate and has also vowed to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court of the United States.
