“Vice President Biden is the leader America needs — a leader who will restore dignity, competence and compassion to the Oval Office while restoring America’s moral leadership around the world. His commitment to fighting climate change, leading an economic recovery for all, and protecting every eligible American’s right to vote are among the many reasons why he must be the next President of the United States,” Abrams said in a statement announcing the endorsement.

Abrams has frequently been discussed as a potential running mate for Biden, who has pledged to name a woman as his vice presidential pick.

Abrams, who narrowly lost a controversial gubernatorial race in 2018 to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R), has frequently pitched herself as a contender, arguing in late April that she was the most electable.
“We have to win the election. And I would point out that I ran the most successful campaign to engage the communities we need to build the broadest coalition necessary in 2020, because what we are going to see on the ground is that this is going to be a campaign unlike anything that’s been run before,” Abrams told The Atlantic in an interview published last month.
