(UnitedVoice.com) – The 2020 presidential election is fast approaching and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, has yet to select a running mate to take on President Trump in November.
Just last week, news broke that the Biden Campaign was vetting Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). Unfortunately, her past as a prosecutor for Hennepin County in Minnesota has damaged her chances of being his choice for vice president. Her odds dropped to +800, down from +300 just under a week ago.
The campaign has reportedly narrowed down the top two running-mate-hopefuls they feel will help Biden become the next president of the United States. According to reports, 63-year-old Rep. Val Demings odds have increased from +2000 to +500. The top choice is Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), whose odds are currently +125.

I would be honored to do just that.”@RepValDemings tells @DeanObeidallah, addressing the rumors of a potential VP ticket run alongside @JoeBiden.https://t.co/OpaiU5PmVb pic.twitter.com/GD2WfIGm0o

Last week, Biden made a comment during an interview saying that if black voters still have to think about who to vote for between him and President Trump, then “…you ain’t black.”
Demings has her own thoughts on his statement.
"Look, the Vice President shouldn’t have said it. He apologized for it."

Biden continues to keep his pledge of selecting a woman as his running mate. One thing is certain, even with the current riots and global pandemic plaguing the nation, this will be one of the most important presidential elections of our time.
