Biden reportedly debates tapping Stacey Abrams as running mate from the start – could it backfire?

Thursday 20:56 GMT

Joe Biden’s top political advisers reportedly are debating whether the former vice president should launch a White House bid by pledging to choose a running mate.

That running mate, according to a report from Axios, could be Stacey Abrams, the 2018 Democratic gubernatorial nominee in Georgia. The former minority leader in the state’s House of Representatives nearly became the nation’s first black female governor and the first Democrat to win a gubernatorial election in Georgia in two decades, but lost the election.

Biden advisers mull Stacey Abrams for running mate

Friday 12:40 GMT

Axios reports 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.

The Georgia Democrat, who is African-American and 31 years younger than Biden, would bring diversity and excitement to the ticket and show voters, in the words of a close source, that Biden “isn’t just another old white guy,” Axios said.

Stacey Abrams nonprofit's spending prompts questions

Saturday 02:24 GMT

Spending by Fair Fight Action, a nonprofit that former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams founded to advance voting rights, and which is staffed by former Abrams campaign aides, is prompting questions about whether it's inappropriately supporting her political ambitions.

The group pointed to roughly $100,000 worth of Facebook ads featuring Abrams, an advertisement for a “Stacey Abrams Fundraiser” that featured Fair Fight Action’s logo, travel for Abrams’ post-election “thank you” tour of Georgia and a professionally produced “highlight reel” of Abrams footage on the group’s website.
