Sen. Tammy Baldwin Says She ‘Certainly Would’ Be Biden’s Running Mate If Asked

Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) is adding her name to the long list of potential running mate picks for 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Co-host of “The View” Whoopi Goldberg asked Baldwin if she would be interested in being Biden’s running mate and if she would accept the job if it were to be offered to her.

Baldwin made it clear she is willing to do whatever it takes to get Biden elected.

“My single focus is making sure that Joe Biden becomes the next president of the United States and I want to help him in any way I can. If he were to ask me to be his running mate, I certainly would,” Baldwin said on Thursday.

Check out her comments below:

Other potential vice president picks include former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), among others.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) originally threw her name in the mix but later bowed out, as IJR previously reported.

She expressed her belief it is the time to put a woman of color on the ticket.

Biden continues to garner endorsements and support.

Biden’s first 2020 fundraiser with former President Barack Obama on Tuesday raked in $7.6 million from more than 175,000 people, as IJR previously reported.

Obama’s long-awaited endorsement of Biden came in April.

Recent results of The New York Times/Siena College survey show “Biden is receiving more support in the six battleground states that contributed to President Donald Trump winning the Electoral College for the 2016 presidential election,” as IJR reported.

According to a statement released by Biden’s campaign manager, he is set to officially accept the Democratic Party’s nomination at the scaled-back Democratic Convention in Milwaukee in August.

The convention will be broadcast from August 17-20 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

  1. A pity she isn’t black and in a wheelchair she’d pretty much tick off every box for Joe’s campaign then. Obviously if you don’t vote for senility or the lesbian then you’re a “hater”.

  2. Don’t forget that Joe’s VP pick stands a good chance of being POTUS very early in his term. Tammy has accomplished nothing as a Senator. She’s hardly qualified to be POTUS.

    1. And then there’s the issue of her being white. Not that it’s racist of course!! Klobuchar graciously backed off because she believes VP pick should be a black woman. But she has her own issues doesn’t she?

  3. Why she’s just so perky. I think the fat black one from Georgia would be more in line with who he’s trying to say he is.
