REPORT: Amy Klobuchar is the Favorite for Joe Biden’s Running Mate

Biden has said he’ll pick a woman.

So-called Democratic insiders are claiming that Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is the front-runner in Joe Biden’s process for choosing a running mate, according to new reporting from the New York Post.

Klobuchar is squarely within the centrist wing of the party, and her selection would mean that Biden’s presidential ticket is composed of two figures associated with the Democratic establishment. Biden has already pledged to pick a woman in a gesture towards shameless identity politics.

A supposed Biden campaign “insider” apparently told the New York Post that the Minnesota Senator “could be number one” in Biden’s current selection process. Other contenders include neoliberal Democrats Kamala Harris and Gretchen Whitmer.

Klobuchar has spoken openly of her ambitions to be selected as Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential nominee before, telling a Biden campaign crowd during her endorsement that she “couldn’t think of a better way to end my candidacy than join the ticket.”

The Minnesota Senator’s campaign was beset of accusations of being an abusive boss towards her own senate staffers, ranging from verbally berating employees to even telling a senate staffer to eat a salad with a comb after forgetting to bring utensils.

Klobuchar’s endorsement of Biden just before Super Tuesday(coinciding with an endorsement from gun-grabber Beto O’Rourke) proved crucial in buffing up Biden enough to fend off democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, having ended her own presidential campaign immediately before. Her Vice Presidential nomination could possibly be a reward for her loyalty to the party establishment.

Joe Biden would be the oldest President ever to be sworn in on inauguration day if he proves successful in defeating Donald Trump, and it’s not entirely impossible his Vice President would take over the reins of the presidency should he win. In any case, the loyal member of the Democrat establishment provides an effective prop for Biden to speak of his commitment towards empowering women.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
