A presidential run for former Vice President Joe Biden could involve a much younger running mate like Texas Representative Beto O’Rourke. According to the Associated Press, insiders have shared that Biden is aware that his advanced age of 76 could be a major stumbling block to securing the Democratic presidential nomination and, as such, advisers are said to have suggested a younger vice presidential pick. O’Rourke’s name has reportedly been discussed as one option. The 46-year-old has been a rising star in the party since running a very competitive Senate race against incumbent Ted Cruz. Though O’Rourke has said he has not made any decisions about 2020, he has become one of the frontrunners for the Democratic nomination, according to a new CNN pollwhich placed him behind Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders who is 77. Meanwhile, the Texas lawmaker has edged ahead of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and California … [Read more...] about Joe Biden’s team considering Beto O’Rourke as 2020 running mate
close Video Could we see a Biden versus Beto 2020 Democratic primary? Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers, with an eye on the 2020 presidential campaign, have reportedly floated Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, as a potential running mate -- apparently to alleviate concerns about Biden’s age. Biden, who served as President Barack Obama’s vice president for both terms, has long been mentioned as a potential 2020 candidate after he considered a presidential run in 2016. The Associated Press reports that past and current advisers to Biden, 76, have expressed some “concerns about age” and have raised the possibility of O’Rourke, 47, as a possible running mate. Last month, O’Rourke (whose birth name is Robert Francis) lost his bid to unseat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, but nonetheless became a national Democratic figure who managed to pull in more than $80 million in donations -- and was the subject of … [Read more...] about Biden advisers float Beto O’Rourke as possible 2020 running mate: report
Pop icon and anti-President Donald Trump activist Cher expressed support for a Joe Biden-Sen. Kamala Harris presidential ticket in 2020 to defeat Trump. “I know Joe Biden and I know him to be a really great man,” Cher said during a recent media appearance.“I would love to see [Biden] with someone young,” said Cher, who campaigned for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and help host a fundraiser for the failed presidential candidate. The 72-year-old also said that she supported Rep. Eric Swalwell or Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running mate. The Half-Breed singer isn’t the only fan of Joe Biden. An October poll indicated that many Democrats are hyped about his chances, with 33 percent of those polled saying that he was their top choice. However, Biden’s chances may be hurt by his establishment record as the Democratic field is being flooded with new voices, from Michael Avenatti to Kamala Harris. Cher’s hatred for the current president often … [Read more...] about Cher: ‘I Would Love to See’ Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Beat Trump in 2020
President Trump formally asked Vice President Mike Pence if he would be his 2020 running mate at the president’s first press conference since the 2018 midterm elections. A reporter asked Wednesday if Trump would choose Pence as his running mate. “Well I haven’t asked him, but I hope so,” Trump said, before calling on Pence to stand as he asked, “Mike, will you be my running mate?” Pence nodded his head in agreement, sparking a round of applause from White House staffers present for the exchange. “That was unexpected, but I feel very fine,” Trump added. Trump selected Pence, who used to serve as Indiana’s governor before becoming vice president, as his running mate in July 2016. Since then, Pence has become one of the president’s most ardent supporters on the campaign trail and in the White House. Trump’s formal announcement of Pence as his running mate also comes as Democrats, fresh off the midterm elections, are looking … [Read more...] about Trump Asks Pence: Will You Be My 2020 Running Mate?
