Democratic presidential hopeful Joseph Biden may be looking at Elizabeth Warren as a potential running mate and second in command should he manage to take office after the elections.
Elizabeth Warren became a top contender in the Democratic Primary race in 2019 with a ideas on “big, structural change” in America, however a poor showing at the Super Tuesday contest saw Warren making a graceful exit from the race.
Biden and Warren have often clashed in the past but unlike Warren, Biden’s support base seems to be just as string now as it was in 2019 and with a realistic opportunity of becoming commander and chief, the Democratic contender is looking for a running mate that could help push him into office.
The two former Democratic presidential contenders have recently become closer after Warren dropped out of the race in March and most recently following the passing of Warren’s brother who succumbed to the coronavirus.
With Warren having already put her full support behind Joseph Biden, it seems the makings of this partnership have already been underway as the two have already been seen together as Biden continues in the race to the White House.
“I used to call my contributors,” the former vice-president said in a twitter video in which both he and Warren thanked a campaign donor, before he went on to add,
“but I never had as many until (Warren) endorsed me.”
The budding friendship between the two may be the key ingredient that the Biden may not only be looking for, but may also need in a potential running mate as he prepares to charm America with a possibility of a fruitful post-Trump era.
