Biden’s Running Mate Search Narrows

Joe Biden’s search for a running mate is entering a second round of vetting with several black women in strong contention.

Democrats with knowledge of the process said the former vice-president’s search committee has whittled the choices down to as few as six serious contenders after initial interviews. Those still in the hunt include African Americans Senator Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, who served as President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Florida representative Val Demings and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.  New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, a Latina, is also a candidate along with Senator Elizabeth Warren.
