Democratic presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke suggested while campaigning in New Hampshire on Saturday that he might choose failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to run with him as his vice presidential candidate.

“I’m one of 21 — [there’s a] long way to go. I feel it to be a little presumptuous to begin selecting or defining who a running mate would be,” O’Rourke replied when asked if he would choose one of the women running against him for the Democratic nomination to be his running mate in the event he wins the nomination.

“Just know this, it’s hard for me to escape the conclusion that if I were lucky enough to be your nominee, that I wouldn’t select one of these extraordinary women with whom I’m running right now or some other extraordinary woman who’s not running right now,” he continued.

“Stacey Abrams is somebody who comes to mind for me right now.”

O’Rourke is not the first 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful who has suggested Abrams as a possible running mate.

Top advisers to Joe Biden’s campaign discussed adding Abrams to the top of the ticket in March in an attempt to show Americans that the former vice president “isn’t just another old white guy.”

Abrams quickly rebuffed the idea of sharing the top of the ticket with Biden stating that “you don’t run for second place.”

The idea of an O’Rourke-Abrams ticket drew a fair amount of mockery on social media.

After her unsuccessful run for governor in 2018, Abrams has openly mulled a second run for the position when Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp’s term expires in 2022.

However, she is also considering launching her own bid for the presidency in 2020.

Abrams is well-known for her consistent accusations of widespread voter suppression during the 2018 election cycle, which she further claims was racially motivated.

Following her narrow loss in November, she appeared regularly on cable news shows and at private events repeating those assertions.

There has been no evidence to corroborate Abrams’s claims.

    It doesn’t matter how Tlaib slices it. It is still her standing against, and showing her hatred of Christians, and especially the Jewish people.

    He’s as deranged and out there as Hillary Clinton, another perennial loser who blames everyone and everything, but herself. Is it any wonder that he’s considering Abrams to raise his imploding campaign?

    Democrats will go lower than a snakes belly trying to get votes. What frauds they are! Beto is just using this black woman to help his failing campaign!
    Beto needs to Go back home to El Paso and your Mexican Drug Cartels, make more millions off Corrupt drug deals, put some more up his nose and maybe pat his kids & wife on the head every so often, America does not want Beto or Stacy!

    I guess he feels he needs a “woman of color” in order to get any footing in the race. And that she is perceived to be “down trodden” and a “victim of political injustice” only adds fuel to his potential running mate and his campaign.

    Good luck with that.
