Stacey Abrams is Practically Begging to be Joe Biden's Running Mate

Her campaigning for the job knows no bounds.

For weeks, Abrams has been all but begging former vice president Joe Biden to pick her as a running mate.

Abrams's thirst for power appears to know no bounds. According to a Politico report published Tuesday, the former Georgia lawmaker has been waging an aggressive behind-the-scenes lobbying effort in addition to her public self-promotion campaign.

Abrams, who has repeatedly declared herself the winner of Georgia's 2018 gubernatorial election despite receiving fewer votes than her Republican opponent, has been "privately calling Democratic powerbrokers, asking them to tell Biden campaign officials that she should be vice president."

These private efforts to promote herself as the ideal candidate are in line with what Abrams has been saying in public. In multiple interviews with major media outlets, Abrams has described herself as "an excellent running mate" with a "strong history of executive and management experience," as well as expertise in international affairs gleaned from "25 years in independent study of foreign policy."

Let's not forget this, from back in February

Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, who has said she plans to be president within the next two decades, said Monday that "of course" she would be honored to be the vice presidential pick of whoever secures the 2020 nomination.

“The first time I was on here I got the question about running as VP during the primary, and I very, apparently famously said, ‘no, because you don't run for second in a primary,’” Abrams said on ABC’s “The View."

“However, because that conversation started, I’m now getting the question a lot from folks and the answer is, of course I would be honored to run as vice president with the nominee.” 

Abrams, a former minority leader in the Georgia state House who launched a failed bid for governor in 2018, added that, as a black woman, she’s in an “unusual position” of being considered the possible next vice president. 

“It would be doing a disservice to every woman of color, every woman of ambition, every child who wants to think beyond their known space for me to say no, or to pretend oh no, I don't want it,” Abrams said. “Of course I want it. Of course I want to serve America, of course I want to be a patriot.” 

Asked again if she wants to run for president one day, Abrams said, “absolutely.”
