Joe Biden's team suggests that his choice for vice president won't be a Black woman. According to Politico.com, Biden's presidential campaign announced their VP selection committee on Thursday. The four-member committee is majority Caucasian.
The committee which is tasked with vetting Biden's VP choice includes Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Biden's longtime friend and Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, and former White House Senate counsel Cynthia Hogan.
The only Black person on the committee is Delaware congresswoman Lisa Blount Rochester. Biden says he hopes the vetting process will be completed by July.
Rumors are running rampant that Biden has already made his choice: Hillary Clinton who enthusiastically endorsed him earlier this week.
Stacey Abrams, who initially stated she did not want the VP job, changed her mind after she heard Biden's announcement that he would choose a woman.
The failed gubernatorial candidate has been campaigning ever since for the VP pick -- even though political strategists frown upon any candidate campaigning for vice president.
South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, who has advocated for Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms as VP, seems to have his doubts.
When asked by MSN if having a Black woman on the ticket is a must, Clyburn said. "I'm among those who feel that it would be great for him to select a woman of color. But that is not a must."
