During an interview on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Conway spoke with co-anchors Ed Henry and Sandra Smith who asked about her thoughts on Biden and what she expects from his campaign in the coming weeks.
Conway quickly noted there is a list of female candidates Biden is said to be considering for his running mate. Describing Biden as “a co-ed at the end of a frat party,” Conway alluded to the idea of him needing a woman to win the election.
“You’ve seen the long-short list of Joe Biden’s V.P. choices, they all happen to be female. He sounds like a, you know, a co-ed at the end of a frat party, ‘I need a woman,'” Conway said.
She went on to name women she assumes are being taken into consideration. Conway also criticized the women for their alleged involvement in what President Donald Trump has coined “Obamagate.”
Conway continued, “So, now he has binders of woman he’s looking through and he’s got people like Sally Yates and Susan Rice allegedly on this list and those are two woman who were very involved in this — in the shenanigans that were happening in the days before we got here to the Trump White House.”
See Conway’s remarks below:
Despite Conway’s mention of Yates and Rice as potential running mates for Biden, multiple reports have suggested other potential running mates.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s names have been mentioned rather frequently in connection with the Democratic frontrunner. In fact, two of the women recently made headlines with Biden.
On Thursday, Abrams appeared on MSNBC with Biden which raised questions about whether or not he was ready to officially announce his running mate, as previously reported on IJR. During that segment, he remained mum about the possibilities.
Whitmer has also recently revealed she has had an “opening conversation” with Biden’s campaign, although she is completely focused on governing her state.
Based on past elections, the vetting process for vice presidential candidates typically takes up to 8 weeks to complete. In most cases, running mate picks are announced ahead of the Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled for August of this year.Published in
