New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D) recently weighed in on who he thinks could join Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential ticket. In an interview Sunday, Booker said he believes former Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams would be a great choice to be Biden’s running mate.
His comments came after Abrams made it known publicly over the weekend that she would be willing to serve as vice president. Booker also named Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D- Minn.) as possible picks, adding that there are plenty of incredible candidates out there to choose from.
“I don’t think Stacey Abrams would be a good pick, I think she would be a great pick,” he stated. “…She is one of the more incredible people I’ve ever had a chance to work with and there’s other incredible people out there.”
Now more than ever, we need a president who will choose hope over fear, unity over division, truth over lies, and science over fiction. pic.twitter.com/RmUuKLc70X

Booker has previously mentioned the idea of Abrams for a vice president pick and last January said she is someone who should be considered on the shortlist of every Democrat who might end up being nominated.
