Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer should be the Democratic Party’s nominee for vice president in 2020. Whitmer gives Democrats their best chance of winning nationally on November 3rd.
Personally, I’m partial to Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, but I would honestly prefer to have Senator Warren as Treasury Secretary and Senator Harris as U.S. Attorney General in an overwhelmingly victorious Biden/Whitmer Administration.
First of all, former Vice President Joe Biden has already promised to choose a woman to be his vice president and specifically an African-American woman to be Biden’s judicial nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Some suggest Biden would depress African-American voter turnout if he doesn’t choose an African-American woman to be his running mate, but based upon the impressive turnout of African-American voters showing up in large numbers to vote for Joe Biden overwhelmingly during the Democratic primaries, there is no apparent need for concern on that front. Plus, two important words in Biden’s favor - BARACK OBAMA, the best president in generations.
Hypothetically, if everything else remains the same as 2016 (and it probably won’t), Joe Biden only needs to add 3 additional states to the Democratic column to win back the White House: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.
