and Beto. Beto is a rock star, they both are, and I want to win. Kamala has proven record at every level, and has done the hard work over her career.

It's tough. The rest, not so much a consideration, especially Warren or Sanders.

Pro tip-if you refuse to vote for a black person due to policy, you are not using racial bias.

Discomfort is flat racism. Surprised Sanders chose this way to announce he is not running.
