Joe Biden will begin vetting his choices for vice president when he forms a selection panel on Friday, May 1.
Biden backed himself into a corner when he vowed he would pick a female as his running mate. He has been under intense pressure to pick a woman of color.
Biden's short list of female candidates includes Stacey Abrams, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, California Senator Kamala Harris and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Abrams is eager to be the country's first Black and female vice president. The failed gubernatorial candidate gave Biden an ultimatum: either pick me, or lose the Black vote.
"I would be an excellent running mate," Abrams insisted in an interview with Elle magazine last week. "I am prepared and excited to serve."
On Wednesday, Abrams went from suggesting herself as vice president to making threats if Biden doesn't choose her.
During an appearance on ABC's "The View," Abrams said she was "concerned" that Biden might not pick a Black woman.
"Women of color, particularly Black women, are the strongest part of the Democratic Party. The most loyal. But that loyalty isn't simply how we vote, it's how we work," she said.
Abrams added that the 77-year-old Biden risks losing the Black vote if he doesn't pick a Black woman.
Abrams, 46, is certainly the liberal news media's choice for VP by far.
"Everybody knows you're extremely qualified," Gayle King told Abrams on Tuesday.
Abrams was unable to convince Georgians to elect her as their governor in 2018. She still refuses to concede the race to Gov. Brian Kemp.
Are Americans ready for a Black female president if Biden, who reportedly has dementia, suddenly dies or becomes incapable of performing his duties as president?
FYI: An earlier version of this post said Biden will announce his VP pick on May 1. In fact, he is expected to form a selection panel to vet his VP choices on May 1.
