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.

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.
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.
