Is Biden Down to Last two Choices for VP?

Speculation continues to arise as former Vice President Joe Biden (D) still has not announced his running mate for the upcoming 2020 election.

Since the beginning of the year, a number of candidates have been part of the conversation. One of those candidates is Florida Rep. Val Demings (D) who has a history with law enforcement in the sunshine state. However, a recent email sent to Democrats may signal that Biden might soon be announcing his Vice Presidential pick, and it seems that Rep. Demings may not have made the cut.

In the email, Democrats are asked to pick between two tickets, which are Joe Biden and Susan Rice (D) while the other ticket is Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris (D). As well, Democrats are given the option to vote for another ticket that they believe is viable to beating President Trump (R) and Vice President Mike Pence (R).

Senator Kamala Harris, who ran against Biden for the 2020 candidacy, has grown as the leading contender for his Vice Presidential pick. Most recently, Biden was pictured holding handwritten notes, and Harris’ name was written on his notes.

Underneath her name, written in bullet points, were “do not hold grudges,” “campaigned with me and Jill,” “talented,” “great help to campaign” and “great respect for her.”

The big question is, could Biden be holding off from making his pick because former First Lady Michelle Obama could be open to the job?
