Former Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd, Delaware MP Lisa Blunt Rochester, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Cynthia C. Hogan, Former White House and Senate Advisor for Biden, will chair the committee’s research to find the good woman to join Biden on the Democratic Ticket. The former vice president told donors at a fundraiser on Wednesday that he hoped this verification process would be completed by July.
Biden promised to choose a woman as a running mate and said he would choose someone who would be “simpatico” with his opinions. He also recently shared that former President Barack Obama had advised him to choose someone who “has strengths where I have weaknesses.”
“The selection of a vice-presidential candidate is one of the most important decisions of a presidential campaign and no one knows more than Joe Biden,” said Biden campaign director Jen O ‘ Malley Dillon, in a press release.
“These four co-chairs reflect the strength and diversity of our party, and will provide tremendous insight and expertise to what will be a rigorous selection and verification process. We are grateful for their service to the countryside and for their leadership. “
The campaign has indicated that this committee will work with a “network of audit teams” to be chaired by former White House lawyer Bob Bauer, campaign general counsel Dana Remus and the former advisor to homeland security and contributor to CNN Lisa Monaco.
There are a number of women who are likely to be considered and who were in regular contact with Biden during the pandemic, including Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. California Senator Kamala Harris, former Georgia House minority leader Stacey Abrams and Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto are also potential candidates.
Biden has also long promised that he would have a diverse administration that “looks like America.” He reiterated this point to donors on Wednesday, saying that his administration, his cabinet, his vice president and all candidates for the Supreme Court “will look like the country.”
The alleged Democratic candidate also said he could announce ministerial posts with his vice-presidential choice before the November elections. He said he would consider a two-party cabinet, telling donors on Wednesday that he would impose “no restrictions if someone was a Republican, if he was the most qualified person” to hold a cabinet position.
