Biden campaign asks pro-abortion Sen. Klobuchar to “undergo vetting to be a potential running mate.”

By Dave Andrusko

Pro-abortion Joe Biden has promised to choose a woman to be his running mate. A number of names have been floated, but there are reports today his campaigning is vetting two.

One is pro-abortion Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar. According to Patrick Condon, reporting for the Star Tribune, her hometown newspaper,

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, long seen as a possible running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden, is reportedly getting official consideration for the job.

That’s according to a tweet Thursday from a CBS News campaign reporter who said Klobuchar has been asked by Joe Biden “to undergo vetting to be considered for his VP.” The report was attributed to a senior Biden aide

The Hill newspaper was more specific: “Former Vice President Joe Biden asked Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) to undergo vetting to be a potential running mate.”

The other name that surfaced in the last day is Rep. Val Demings,  who “has formally begun interviewing with the Biden campaign for the vice presidential nomination and that the vetting process is underway, a source with direct knowledge told NBC News Thursday.” In addition to being reliably pro-abortion, she is from Florida, a key state in any presidential election, and for Trump haters, she has an additional credential: she “served as a House manager during the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.”

The vice presidential selection is particularly high profile both because Biden is 77 (he would be the oldest ever president-elect] and has often talked about being a “transitional” president who’d hand the baton off to a younger Democrat.

Klobuchar’s name has surfaced many times in the past few months. She is as reliably pro-abortion as you can get—36 opportunities, 36 pro-abortion votes. 

She also joined 42 other Senate pro-abortionists to block a vote on the BornAlive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. That measure would do no more than guarantee that abortion survivors would be given the same medical assistance that any baby born at the same gestational age would receive.
