[Ed. – I’m not going to say “Binders full of women.” I’m just not, so don’t think I am. I do have to say, however, that it seems pretty tin-eared to imagine Whitmer could deliver Michigan for Biden. The animus against her there is off the charts, and for good reason. She’s a petty tyrant, committing one infuriating executive overreach after another in the coronavirus lockdown.]
Faced with a slew of baggage-laden female black candidates for his running mate, each of whom could drag his ticket down, Joe Biden is reaching out and around the vaunted race box to consider Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the governor of Michigan, as his running mate.
According to the Detroit News:
Lansing — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled to Delaware last weekend to meet with Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s first known in-person session with a potential running mate as he nears a decision, according to the Associated Press. …
It’s a sign of desperation. Biden had already boxed himself in by saying he would pick a female candidate, and it’s well known that he so badly wanted a black female candidate in the era of BLM.
