Amid months of speculation, Stacey Abrams said that she would be “happy” to run for vice president alongside the Democratic nominee. Abrams is the 45-year-old former Democratic nominee for Georgia governor who lost a close race against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018. She has repeatedly tamped down rumors that a meeting she held in March with Joe Biden, 76, was to discuss running as his number two. Speaking at an event in Iowa on Monday, Abrams said that she would consider joining the ticket of whoever wins the nomination, according to the Daily Iowan. “You do not run in

If she got elected VP she would have to resign as governor of Georgia which would cause a constitutional crisis because Governor Kemp would most likely appoint a Republican to take her place.

Just when you think you've heard the last of her, she pops up out of nowhere offering to be the nominee's running mate. When you lose a state office by 56,000 votes, you're not bringing anything to a national ticket.

Can you believe that the USA has sunk this low that "candidates" such as fat, ugly Abrams, stupid, clueless Biden, insane, commie Sanders and, bizarre, hysterical Fauxcahontas are actually running for POTUS?

A police department in Oregon is urging people that if they’ve run out of toilet paper, it’s not worth calling 911.

Andrew Gillum's carefully cultivated image as a rising political star and God-fearing family man came crashing down after he was found in a Miami Beach hotel room with two men and baggies of suspected meth. The former Tallahassee, Fla., mayor was in Tallahassee on Monday to energize college voters at Florida State and Florida A&M University, where his political ambitions were born. But four days later, his well-publicized effort to register a million voters ahead of Election Day was in major doubt, along with his once-promising political career.

On Sunday evening, the remaining candidates with a real shot at the Democratic nomination will meet in Washington amid a pandemic to state why they should be chosen to lead the nation. In many ways, the debate will vary from all others held since last summer. Instead of a large and diverse field of candidates, only two old, white men remain. And instead of testing their styles and one-liners in front of a crowd, this meeting will lack an audience. With so much stripped away, the candidates will either shine or fail. At this moment, it seems that the nomination is former Vice President Joe Biden's to lose.
