KAMALA HARRIS, 55 years old. Senator of California
After racial discrimination and police brutality caused widespread protests, Biden̵
Harris is widely regarded as a favorite of running with Biden. She is a war-tested former presidential candidate and former prosecutor. She has demonstrated the ability to launch attacks-a valuable asset for a running partner. She is the first senator from California and has been scrutinized by the media and rival campaigns.
Harris backed Biden after quitting the game. But in the Democratic debate about his opposition to the school bus in the primary election, her criticism of him annoyed some people near Biden, who worried about her ambition and loyalty.
Family life: Married, with two adult stepchildren, married to Douglas Emhoff.
SUSAN RICE, 55 years old. Former National Security Advisor
Rice served as President Barack Obama’s national security adviser during her second term, where she worked with Obama’s Vice President Biden on foreign policy matters.
Prior to this, Rice served as the US ambassador to the United Nations under Obama and provided national security advice to several other Democratic presidential candidates.
Rice is a black woman who can help promote the vote of African Americans, the Democratic Party’s most loyal voters. But she never ran for office, which means she will not be tested during the campaign. When she participated in the 2012 attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya, the incident could become a campaign activity again.
Family life: Married with son and daughter to former ABC News executive Ian Cameron (Ian Cameron); son John is a Trump supporter
VAL DEMINGS, 63 years old. Florida Congressman
Biden said that Demings, an African-American congresswoman from Florida’s campaign battlefield state, was on the list of candidates for her running partner.
The former Orlando police chief served as one of the managers of the House of Representatives’ impeachment proceedings against Republican President Donald Trump, but he has a low profile among voters across the country.
Demings’ background in law enforcement and her relatively uncensored experience as a police chief can be considered a risk factor for Biden’s campaign, which hopes to attract progressive voters.
Family life: Married to the current mayor of Orange County, Florida, Jerry Demings (Jerry Demings) and have three adult children
KAREN BASS, 66 years old. California Congress Women
The newest member of Biden’s shortlist is Bass, a congresswoman from Southern California and chair of the Congressional Black Panel.
Bass has a broad background in police reform and was the first to respond to legislation in the House of Representatives about the police killing of George Floyd in May. But at the age of 66, she may not be able to provide the prospect of the generational transition that Biden wants to show.
Family life: daughter and son who died in a car accident in 2006; her previous marriage had four adult stepchildren
Tommy Duckworth (52). Senator of Illinois
Duckworth has a fascinating personal story that will help strengthen the national security credentials of the campaign.
The senator from Illinois is a retired veteran who lost his legs when the helicopter was shot down in Iraq in 2004. She went on to become the first disabled woman and the first Thai American elected to Congress. However, Duckworth has not been at the forefront of civil justice issues on Harris, Bass and Biden lists.
Family life: Married and veteran, Bryan Bowlsbey (Bryan Bowlsbey), has two daughters, five are Abigail and two, both are Maile .
Keisha Lance (KEISHA LANCE) bottom pants, 50 years old. Mayor of Atlanta
Bottoms was the city’s first mayor, and the city was hit hard by protests over the death of Floyd and the shooting of another black man, Rayshard Brooks, in June by Atlanta police. Atlanta has always been a hotspot for the coronavirus pandemic, which makes Bottoms the front line of two of the country’s biggest challenges.
Although Bottoms was an early supporter of Biden, her lack of experience at the federal level may have doomed her opportunities. Biden will become the oldest president of the United States, and he insists that his second president is ready to assume the presidency at any time.
Married to Home Depot executive Derek Die and have four adopted children
Elizabeth Warren, 71 years old. Senator of Massachusetts
Warren has often talked with Biden since he withdrew from the Democratic nomination contest and was recognized by him. Biden’s advisers viewed the Massachusetts senator as a bridge between the former vice president and those who doubted his commitment to gradually setting policy priorities.
However, Warren’s choice may trigger accusations of Trump’s campaign, claiming that Biden favors an overly leftist agenda and may alienate moderate voters in the battlefield states that Biden is farming.
Family life: Married to Harvard University professor Bruce Mann, with two first-married adult children and three grandchildren
MICHELLE LUJAN GRISHAM, 60 years old. Governor of New Mexico
Lujan Grisham became the state’s first Latin American democratic governor in 2018 after six years in Congress.
Biden’s campaign has been pushed by allies to consider running partners, which may increase his support among Latino voters, which may be the largest minority voting group in the November election.
Family life: Husband Gregory Girsham died of a cerebral aneurysm in 2004. She has two daughters
GRETCHEN WHITMER, 48 years old. Governor of Michigan
Whitmer improved his image and became the governor of a battlefield state that was hit hard by the coronavirus.
But she came under fire from some residents of Michigan earlier this year, asking them to place orders at home, which they thought was too much trouble.
Family life: the first marriage has two children, the second marriage has three stepsons and dentist Marc Mallory
