Biden Sends Klobuchar to Michigan

Joe takes no time getting his new surrogates out on the trail for him. Once a candidate withdraws they a somewhat short self lif unless used right away.
I wonder if Pete will get dispatched and where?

But getting Amy in the field this soon and running in advance of his own trip makes a ton of sense. If I was Joe I'd have her stop in North Dakota on the Way to Spokane and the Seattle suburbs.

1. Joe should have Amy stay in the Midwest for him.

 

Thatís where she will be during the fall running as his VP.

2. This makes me think she is on his short list for VP. I

 

would think she would want at least a week of rest before getting out there as a surrogate.

But as a primary voter for Klobuchar I am happy to see any indication that she might be VP.

3. I read earlier today that the morning after Klobuchar endorsed Biden....

 

....her entire campaign was out knocking on doors and making phone calls for Biden.

4. I guess they're known as "Amy's Army".

 

Sorry, I wasn't even supporting her, but this is making the tears come to my eyes.

14. i have alot of respect for Amy K. She gets it and she's a great surrogate for Biden.

 

i'm sure he's got a good deal with her for a plum position in the BIDEN administration. I love the sound of that!

6. She had 24 hours

 

And they cut tv and radio ads for Biden featuring her in Minnesota.

She is going to work hard for him to get the nomination.

And she would make a fantastic VP.

She shares his policies, his personality, brings in moderate suburban women, is from the Midwest region we need to win, and would make history as the first elected Female VP.

7. That was somewhat true in Minnesota for Super Tuesday

 

I don't know about the rest of the staff. But even before South Carolina the call script had changed subtly to emphasize getting to the polls and not so much getting to the polls for her.

I would not read too much of VP speculation into this though. While I'm sure she is on the short list, as she would have been anyway Bide will wait to see how the campaign plays before really getting into those thoughts.

8. I think any short list includes

 

Amy and Harris. Not Warren, due to age and the R governor problem.

I know there was a post on Catherine Marie Cortez Masto. But Iíd hate to lose my Senator, and we need her incumbency in 2022. Nevada is not reliably blue yet.

10. I don't think any of the withdrawn candidates will be VP, especially those already in the Senate.

12. It will be an interesting choice.

 

And will depend on what he will need headed into the convention.

It will be a woman. But it will depend on if he needs an understudy at that point or needs a consolidator.
Klobuchar is the best positioned of the Senators because her expected replacement is Peggy Flanagan the current Minnesota Lt. Governor and a fantastic Talent.

16. I don't know about that.

 

Biden is sending Amy to campaign for him.

What is a VP but the top campaign surrogate for the President?

17. Good for Joe. This is one of the things I do appreciate about a Joe candidacy. I think Joe

 

Has no problem at all delegating and using (in a good way) other Democrats. I also think he will use his VP so that is exciting to me.
