Joe Biden holds final interviews with VP candidates as he looks to announce pick next week

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, co-chair of Joe Biden's vice president selection committee, said Tuesday that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee plans on spending the next several days interviewing his the finalists to be his running mate.

"We have amazing women that have been a part of this process," Garcetti told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Tuesday. "We're keeping them all, we vetted them heavily. All of them have passed a vet, and now in this next week, week and a half, Mr. Biden can spend some time with them."

Biden, who has pledged to pick a woman for the ticket, initially planned to announce his running mate the first week of August. But reports now indicate that could come next week, giving him more time to settle on a preferred candidate.

"I know he's going to pick a vice president who reflects the same relationship he had with Barack Obama," Garcetti said. "He told us at the beginning of this: 'I'm not looking for a geographic, a demographic or a political choice. I'm looking for somebody who can serve the American people and be the closest counselor to me in the White House'."

Those reported to be on Biden's short list include Sen. Kamala Harris of California, former national security advisor Susan Rice and Rep. Karen Bass of California.


Susan Rice has no experience to be VP, Karen Bass likes socialists, and Kamala got to the top the old fashioned way.
