The momentum that had been building around Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) as a possible vice presidential pick for Joe Biden has come to an abrupt halt amid controversy over Cuba.
The suggestion that Bass harbored some degree of past sympathy for the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro has caused consternation among Democrats in Florida.
They worry that selecting Bass could seriously endanger Bidens chances in the largest of the battleground states. The stakes could hardly be higher, they warn.
Picking Bass violates the central tenet of a vice presidential selection, which is Do no harm, according to Florida-based pollster and Democratic strategist Fernand Amandi.
It does not just do harm it would very well be something that sabotages the prospects of carrying the nations biggest swing state in an election that must be won for the future of the republic, he added.
Cuban Americans usually cast around 6 percent of all votes in the Sunshine State.

Cross her off the thin list.
But I thought all Dems loved Castro?
I’m surprised they didn’t think the fact that Cuba was a Communist Paradise wouldn’t make things even.
The Democrat Media put that Karen in the Bass-o-Matic
Bring her on, PedoJoe
Well she better find something pretty quick because her looks aren’t pushing her over the finish line.
This woman worshipped Castro
That's why Biden delayed his announcement again.
His team is scrambling.
Not a serious consideration in the first place.
Nearly all the names thrown about do nothing for the ticket; they either don’t really contribute the electoral map or they have baggage to handle. California isn’t likely in play, so Bass and Harris don’t help with that. Warren is another New Englander and far left. Maybe he’s got a surprise. He should never have boxed himself into a corner by announcing the gender of the candidate before he won the nomination. But that was his error.
They’re not troubled by her communist sympathies, but the threat it will cause to their power.
How stupid are they if the didn’t think her comments at least the ones that were not scrubbed would be talked about. Tucker thinks it will be Rice who is bad and has shown to be a superb liar.
She’s uglier than Lizard Woman Val Jarrett if that’s possible.
Just dress him in drag.
yep, way to old for creepy Joe! He likes em young!
