Biden Mulling Early Pick of Stacey Abrams as Running Mate, Pledging to Serve Single Term by Joseph Curl for The Gateway Pundit
Joe Biden is old. How old is he? He was born before the Frisbee was invented. Before Velcro. Before microwaves, the polio vaccine, even Mr. Potatohead.
Biden is so old that when won his Delaware Senate seat in in 1972, one of his prospective rivals in the 2020 presidential campaign was not yet even born.
Biden is 76 years old but would be 78 should he run for president and win.
But Biden is reportedly considering a few options that might make what appears to be an inevitable presidential campaign more palatable, especially to young people.
“Mr. Biden and his top advisers are considering nodding to the rising next generation in Democratic politics — and elevating an heir — by announcing a running mate early, well before the nomination is sealed. Also under discussion is a possible pledge to serve only one term and framing Mr. Biden’s 2020 campaign as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country, according to multiple party officials,” The New York Times reported on Thursday.
Meanwhile, another news outlets writes that Biden’s run will come as a “packaged” deal. “Close advisers to former Vice President Joe Biden are debating the idea of packaging his presidential campaign announcement with a pledge to choose Stacey Abrams as his vice president,” Axios reported.
Abrams, you’ll recall, is the 45-year-old African American woman who ran for governor of Georgia but lost in 2018. Her spokesman released a statement on Thursday about the reports.
“Abrams continues to keep all options on the table for 2020 and beyond. She has met with over half a dozen presidential contenders to discuss their commitment to voting rights and to investing in Georgia,” read the statement.
