Amy Klobuchar Withdraws From Biden's V.P. Candidate Pool, Says a Woman of Color Should Be Nominated

Amy Klobuchar has announced that she has withdrawn from consideration to be Joe Biden‘s running mate on the democratic ballot this November.

The former V.P. has previously announced that he will be picking a woman to be his Vice Presidential nominee and Amy thinks he should pick a woman of color.

“America must seize on the moment and I truly believe — as I actually told the VP last night when I called him — that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket,” Klobuchar said on MSNBC. “And there are so many incredible, qualified women. But if you wanna heal this nation right now, my party yes, but our nation, this is a helluva way to do it.”

Klobuchar‘s name has been in the news lately following the death of George Floyd in her home state of Minnesota. Her time as chief prosecutor for Hennepin County has been scrutinized because of the lack of prosecutions she pursued in police brutality cases.

“I think I could’ve functioned fine and there’s a lot of untruths out there about my record and now is not the time to debate those,” she said in response to a question about her past record.

Last week, Biden revealed what will happen if Trump loses the election and refuses to leave the White House in January.

Amy Klobuchar's Husband Diagnosed with Coronavirus, Now In Hospital After Coughing Up Blood

Senator Amy Klobuchar‘s husband John Bessler, 52, is currently hospitalized with Coronavirus.

“John started to feel sick when I was in Minnesota and he was in Washington D.C. and like so many others who have had the disease, he thought it was just a cold. Yet he immediately quarantined himself just in case and stopped going to his job teaching in Baltimore. He kept having a temperature and a bad, bad cough and when he started coughing up blood he got a test and a chest X-ray and they checked him into a hospital in Virginia because of a variety of things including very low oxygen levels which haven’t really improved. He now has pneumonia and is on oxygen but not a ventilator,” the 59-year-old politician wrote.

She continued, “While this is his story and not mine, I wanted to let my colleagues and constituents know that since John and I have been in different places for the last two weeks and I am outside the 14-day period for getting sick, my doctor has advised me to not get a test. As everyone is aware, there are test shortages for people who need them everywhere and I don’t qualify to get one under any standard.”

“I love my husband so very much and not being able to be there at the hospital by his side is one of the hardest things about this disease,” Amy added.

We’re wishing John and his family the best during this time and hoping for a quick recovery.
