Stacey Abrams Says She Would “Be Honored” on Being the VP Pick


Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Monday said she would “be honored” to be the vice presidential candidate on the 2020 Democratic ticket.

“The first time I was on here I got the question about running as VP during the primary, and I apparently famously said, ‘no, because you don’t run for second in a primary,’” Abrams said on ABC’s The View.’ “However, because that conversation started, I’m now getting the question a lot from folks and the answer is of course, I would be honored to run as vice president with the nominee.”

She added that, as a black woman, she’s in an “unusual position” of being considered the possible next vice president.
