As presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spends this week at his home in Delaware, holding one-on-one meetings with roughly half-dozen contenders who have made his shortlist for running mate, a new report speculates that the former vice president has narrowed his choices to two candidates.
Last week, Biden told reporters that he would choose his party's vice presidential nominee by "the first week in August."
A Biden running mate announcement is now likely to come closer to the convention, which has been the normal procedure in recent decades.
The past two and a half months – amid nationwide protests over police brutality against minorities and systemic racism – Biden has faced increased calls to name a Black woman as the party's vice presidential nominee.
In an interview on MSNBC, the House Democratic Caucus chair said "Karen Bass or Val Demings would be great choices."
