Stacey Abrams escalated her pressure on Joe Biden after rumors swirled that he will pick failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as his running mate in July.
After losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump, Clinton has positioned herself to be president of the United States after all.
On Tuesday, Clinton enthusiastically endorsed Biden, whom many say has senile dementia.
According to Politico.com, Abrams "has been privately calling Democratic power brokers, asking them to tell Biden campaign officials that she should be vice president..."
In numerous interviews, Abrams, who unsuccessfully campaigned for Georgia governor, has said she "would be an excellent running mate" for Biden.
Unlike other candidates, Abrams, 46, has loudly campaigned for the VP job.
Some political insiders say Abrams' behavior appears "desperate." They say her actions are an unprecedented and shameless attempt to shoehorn her way into the White House.
According to Politico, "overt campaigning for the vice presidency has traditionally been frowned upon".
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, another candidate for VP, said "You don't run for that. That is a selection of the top of the ticket, and everyone else should be just busy doing their jobs."
Democratic strategists say Abrams lacks foreign policy experience, but Abrams has cited her "independent study" of international affairs as a qualification for the role of VP.
Her only political experience includes being minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives.
Abrams stubbornly refuses to concede the governor's race to Gov. Brian Kemp after losing the race by 55,000 votes in 2018.
