    Susan Rice, a former UN ambassador and national security advisor under President Barack Obama, has skyrocketed up the odds to be Joe Biden’s running mate. Rice is +650 in odds posted Sunday at 888sports' UK-facing betting site, the third choice just behind Florida Rep. Val Demings, who is at +550. California Sen. Kamala Harris remains the favorite at -134. That marks Harris' best odds ever. Ten days ago, Rice was +2500 to be Biden’s running mate before reports emerged that she was one of six women seen as serious contenders and on the short list.

    Elizabeth Warren is among the top three choices for Joe Biden's running mate, according to his selection committee. Aides to Biden, the two-term vice president and now the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, are seriously considering the Massachusetts senator and former White House hopeful, the Associated Press reported Friday. Warren's name has floated to the top of the short list, along with California Sen. Kamala Harris and Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice, as his vetting team enters the process's second stage. Pundits believe Warren could energize more liberal Democrats compared to Biden, but she's a septuagenarian like him and...

    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams says she has not heard from Joe Biden’s presidential campaign as it starts its vetting process to pick a nominee for vice president. “I have said many times that if called I will answer, but I have not received any calls,” Abrams, who rose to prominence when she narrowly lost Georgia’s gubernatorial race in 2018, said Wednesday night on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Abrams, also a former leader in the Georgia state House, has been frequently floated as a possible running mate for Biden, particularly as pressure ramps up for the former vice president...

    Fair Fight created a ‘Voter Protection Hotline’ for Georgians to call if they saw suspicious behavior at the polls and have also solicited voters’ stories via submission through a Google Doc. “Voter suppression takes on multiple forms. Georgia excels in too many of them,” Ms. Abrams said in a tweet on Wednesday. “Even laws that should help the people — like absentee ballots — can be weaponized.” Earlier this week, Fair Fight told The Associated Press it was partnering with liberal groups Priorities USA and American Bridge to form a “Voter Suppression Watch” team.

    "I’ve already said I’m going to pick a Supreme Court justice who is a woman of color," Biden said. "I’ve already said my cabinet will be full of people of women of color. Men and women of color. I also already said that there are women of color under consideration. That is not the only criteria to determine who will be the vice president of the United States of America that I’ll choose as a running mate. It is just beginning the process. I guarantee you, there are more — there’s more than one African American woman being considered for...

    Oddsmakers dropped Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s chances to become the Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate overnight, with bettors now looking at a 7/1 chance she gets the nod, according to an international online gambling service. . . . Ms. Harris improved slightly as Ms. Klobuchar fell, moving to 6/4 from 6/5 odds. Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren rounds up the top three contenders, according to oddsmakers, with money on her pick currently seeing a slight uptick from 13/2 to 5/1 odds. . . . Overall, bettors still favor President Donald Trump to win re-election, but Mr. Biden’s chances have also improved...

    "Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her," the New Mexico Republican Party tweeted Wednesday. "A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end jewelry." Just a day before, Whitmer was forced to address reports that her husband had used her name at a dock to help get their boat placed in the water faster ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. “My husband made a failed attempt at humor last week when checking in...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden says he hopes to decide on a running mate by Aug. 1, about two weeks before the Democratic nominating convention in Milwaukee. Speaking at a digital fundraiser hosted by former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Biden said his campaign’s vice presidential committee has already interviewed the contenders on his short list.

    The Breakfast Show host Charlamagne tha God, whose real name is Lenard Larry McKelvey, said elevating Klobuchar onto the Democratic presidential ticket would be akin to committing political "suicide." McKelvey found himself in the middle of a viral moment yesterday when Biden told him that black people "ain't black" if they vote for Trump. . . . especially at this moment, after the comments that he made ... He would be a fool not to put a black woman as his running mate."

    The first known contender to be asked for those references is New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, per an anonymous individual with knowledge of the request in the report. It did not report any other women on Biden's vice presidential consideration list who received such a request. Lujan Grisham has told her allies in recent days that Biden's team had begun vetting her to be his running mate, Politico reported on Tuesday.

    Within the next 48-72 hours, we should know who Donald Trump has chosen for a running mate. Some think it will be Friday and others think it will be over the weekend. But chances are, we will know by this time on Saturday (just three days from now) as typically candidates want to maximize the convention news cycle and announcing a few days prior will help accomplish that and build some excitement leading into the convention itself. I have no idea who Trump is going to pick but I do know this: Once the pick is made, there is...

    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is “95 percent” likely to pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, according to the Washington Times. Sources close to Pence and to the Trump campaign tell Washington Times’ reporter Ralph Hallow that Pence is the probable vice presidential (VP) pick. The Trump campaign announced Sunday it would hold a campaign rally near Indianapolis on Tuesday night, furthering the rumor that Pence will be announced as the VP choice.

    Ben Carson has the ability to say everything he shouldn’t at exactly the wrong time. Since the former neurosurgeon has taken up the role of working on Donald Trump’s vice presidential team, he has suggested that the candidate may pick a Democratic running mate, dropped she-who-must-not-be-named Sarah Palin as a potential pick and earlier generally questioned a number of the presumptive nominee’s habits from his Twitter use to lack of pragmatism. So he was off the VP team in a hurry.

    Donald Trump has hired the same D.C. power lawyer who vetted Sarah Palin in 2008 to conduct the legal review of his potential running mate. NBC News confirms that A.B. Culvahouse, a partner in the firm O'Melveny & Myers, will lead the process of sifting through financial, legal and other background materials submitted by potential candidates before Trump finalizes his choice for second-in-command. Trump personally met Culvahouse Wednesday in New York after the Trump campaign reached out to at least two DC-based law firms in an effort to find the best counsel for the job. After John McCain made a...

    Donald Trump climbed to the top of the real estate world in the most ruthless, cut-throat, predatory and brutally competitive venues in the world, New York City. Trump did not become the multi-billion-dollar successful deal-maker through naive decisions or suffering with fools – that’s not how success in that business venue works... Understand this and you understand why Donald Trump’s inner circle is life-long or multi-decades deep. Understand this – and you also understand that everything outside of that nucleus is disposable. Everything outside that circle is a tool.
