Joe Biden’s choice of running mate has been the subject of much speculation over the past week. But even though the alleged Democratic candidate has said he will announce his run for vice president in the first week of August, now it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer.Reports say Biden is not expected to hire a candidate for vice president until around August 10. It’s just a week before the Democratic convention.
The choice is more important than ever, as Biden, 77, is said to be the oldest person ever to be elected president. This makes the vice president likely to take over at some point and lead the Democratic Party in the 2024 election.
The alleged shortlist included Sen. Kamala Harris, Representative Karen Bass (both from California) and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, according to reports.
