‘Pick a black woman for veep’-200 women petition Joe Biden
More than 200 black women on Friday signed an open letter to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden urging him to pick a black woman as his running mate.
Pauletta Washington, the former chairman and president of the US Tennis Association; Katrina Adams, the former editor-in-chief of Essence magazine; Susan Taylor, and the first female African American president of Spelman College, Johnnetta Cole.
“I’m not telling anybody that that’s anything that I think must be. I just think that’s what I favor,” said Clyburn, who hasn’t directly counseled the former vice president about his pick.
