Biden VP frontrunner withdraws from consideration, says Biden should choose woman of color

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) upended Joe Biden’s election trajectory by announcing that she has ended her bid for vice president.

The failed 2020 candidate shocked Democrats by announcing on Thursday that she is withdrawing from consideration due to rising racial tensions and called upon Biden to choose a woman of color for his running mate.

Klobuchar and fellow Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) were both said to be at the top of the shortlist for vice president, but Klobuchar’s public call for Biden to select a woman of color has major implications for who he may ultimately choose.

“This is a historic moment, and America must seize on this moment,” the Klobuchar said in an MSNBC appearance. “I truly believe, as I actually told the vice president last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”

Klobuchar isn’t the only one to pressure Biden to direct his choice of running mate away from white women. Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics tweeted that due to the current political climate, Biden “will have great difficulty picking anyone but a woman of color.”

“Pressure for a woman of color has been building from influential segments of the party, but fundamentally, George Floyd’s murder, the widespread protests, and a newfound cultural reexamination of race in America has brought us to the threshold of a history-making pick,” Sabato continued.

Other candidates for VP include Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, Rep. Val Demings (D-FL), Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms, along with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI). Biden is in the process of vetting several of these candidates and is expected to make an announcement in the coming weeks.

    1. Of course force a VP that has to be a woman of color quality of the person dont matter why dont they just pick any one,a drug addict or a convicted murderer along as they are a person of color. Color should not be a factor qualifications should be. Plus who ever is vp will be president cause Biden is a very mentally ill person. But it dont matter cause TRUMP WILL BE RE-ELECTED I ONLY wish Trump could serve 4 terms.

  1. So…. further proof that to the Dems, this election is ALL about the color of the candidates skin.

    MLK would be ashamed of race being more important to the dem party than are their candidates qualifications or picking the best person for the job, without race being their first qualification. 👎☹️👎

    1. Obama was more a dictator than Trump, at least Trump has gone more for the country in 35 years than he did in 8 years. And Obama had a Democratic congress.

        1. AMEN TO THAT STATEMEN EVEN HIS BROTHER SAYS HE WAS BORN IN KENYA BUT
          NO ONE DOES ANYTHING ABOUT IT HE WAS A FAKE PRESIDENT AND HIS WIFE MICHAEL
          SHE SPENT MORE MONEY THAN 3 FIRST LADIES…TOOK 3 AIRPLANES TO TAKE THEM ANYWHERE
          ONE FOR HER AND CHILDREN ONE FOR OBAMA AND OF COURSE ONE FOR THE DOG..WHY?? YOU ASK
          BECAUSE MUSLINS DONT TRAVEL WITH ANIMALS..WHAT A WASTE…SO GLAD HE IS GONE..WISH HE WOULD STAY OUR OF THE WH BUSINESS..

  2. The Liberals don’t give a damn about any citizen only their wealthy friends. They are all on a power trip, racist against Americans, Christians and kill babies all for power. These Liberal extremists are nuts sure you have noticed rioting/looting pretending they were all peaceful protestors. The worse part is the Liberal ran states condoned and made way for their crazy followers. Now want taxpayers to foot the bill to rebuild their cities they allowed terrorists to tear down all to win the election. Pretty scary to think what they have in plan for all of us low income people that are taking up space. Pelosi is proof positive her CA district has the highest homeless rate and none of the wealthy Hollywood people help any of them. Extremely sad due to the fact that these actors made their millions in CA, and are the ones pushing and paying for a socialist President.

  3. These Socialist Democrats don’t care about choosing the most qualified candidate all the want is the black vote because they know they can’t win without it.

  4. Yes Trump 2020 there is not 1 democrat that qualifies for the job right now BLM has tarnished the spirit of America MLK would have not done it this way you older black folks know you have been lead on and lied to by the Democratic Party Biden is senile he doesn’t know what town he’s in that’s why they keep him in the basement like a child so he won’t blow it you wait till debates happen Trump will make senile Joe pee his pants mark my words.

  5. Intelligence & Ability
    should be determining qualifications.
    NOT SKIN COLOR.
    TRUMP/PENCE
    2020🙏🇺🇸❤🙏🇺🇸❤🙏🇺🇸❤🙏🇺🇸❤

  6. For once in their lives, will the libs tell the truth? Not a chance, their brains are inflected and that’s why they don’t believe they are lying. The are great make at making up stories. They should try to not spin the facts. But as we know, that’s to hard for them. There focus is on just on hating President Trump

    1. THE VP HE CHOOSES, WHITE OR BLACK, SHOULD KNOW HOW TO CHANGE ADULT DIAPERS, AS FIRST QUALIFICATION, NOT THE COLOR OF THE SKIN.

  7. Of course force a VP that has to be a woman of color quality of the person dont matter why dont they just pick any one,a drug addict or a convicted murderer along as they are a person of color. Color should not be a factor qualifications should be. Plus who ever is vp will be president cause Biden is a very mentally ill person. But it dont matter cause TRUMP WILL BE RE-ELECTED I ONLY wish Trump could serve 4 terms.

  8. She made the right decision!!!
    I honestly don’t think she would of made the right VP!!! I like her, but not for this Position.

  9. Biden should wait after debate with Trump, his worries will be over, he does not have to pick a black women VP. Trump will make him look like swiss cheese, no brains only holes.

  10. So we have come to this, we no longer attempt to choosed a PRESIDENTIAL candidate based on his or her qualifications to lead the most powerful nation on the planet. We are going to choose the person to lead this nation not based on their qualifications, but based on their skin color or race and on their sex! Oh how stupid the Americans have become! Go ahead and do this, it will change the probability of reelecion Trump to a CERTAINTY!

  11. It has come to this! We no longer choose the most powerful position on earth based on qualifications, but on the color of thier skin, or race, and their gender. IF by some horrible mistake Biden is elected his VP partner WILL become President within the year as Biden is mentally unable to fulfill the Office of President. How sad.
