Now that Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the Democratic Presidential primary, the hopes of electing the first female president of the United States have been shattered. However, the election fever still hasn’t lost its grip over the country’s populace.
Many people who rooted for Warren in the presidential race are of the opinion that all is not lost. There is still a good chance of electing a woman vice president, and the battle is on between Elizabeth Warren and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Now, the question is who will be picked as a running mate by Sanders or Biden in the final ticket.
Let’s first check out what are the vice president odds in 2020.
Stacey Abrams (Odds +500)
Stacey Abrams, an emerging star, had narrowly missed out in a 2018 bid for Georgia governor. At that time, she received active support from Biden. She made her way to the top three list of serious contenders at +500 besides Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. These odds can anytime swing in either direction in the coming weeks with three contenders so bunched together, and there’s no telling what a potential Biden endorsement from Warren would do for her chances.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Odds +1000)
Former Vice President Joe Biden looks formidable after another excellent primary/caucus showing, defeating Bernie Sanders in Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, and Michigan on Tuesday. Amidst these remarkable victories, it is highly unlikely that Warren will endorse Bernie Sanders. Warren faced unusual pressure to throw her support behind a candidate after both former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar dropped out of the race and supported Biden after Super Tuesday. Warren’s chances of grabbing the seat of vice president will look bright if she decides to support Biden among all speculations.
