CNN)Rep. Maxine Waters said Sunday she’s confident presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden will choose a Black woman as his running mate ahead of his anticipated announcement in the coming days.
“It’s going to be historic whomever ever it is. Do I believe that it’s going to be an African American woman? I certainly do,” the California Democrat told CNN’s Jim Acosta on “Newsroom.”
Waters specifically cited influence from South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn as well as “the way African American women have emerged in this country, showing they’re the most reliable part of the Democratic Party” as the reason she believes Biden will select a Black woman.
