Sen. Cortez Masto(D-NV) Withdraws Name From Biden VP Consideration

Newsmax: Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada said Thursday that she’s not interested in serving as running mate to presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Cortez Masto, who in 2016 became the first Latina elected to the U.S. Senate, said in a statement that she supports the former vice president but does not want to join the Democratic presidential ticket.

“I support Joe Biden 100% and will work tirelessly to help get him elected this November. It is an honor to be considered as a potential running mate but I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration,” Cortez Masto said in a statement.

She noted that Nevada’s economy is one of the hardest hit by the coronavirus, with the worst unemployment rate in the nation at 28.2%. She said she will focus on getting Nevada residents back on their feet.

Later Thursday, during an online discussion hosted by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service, Cortez Masto said it was exciting and humbling to have been considered but noted that she was elected to a six-year senatorial term.

“My fight is in the Senate, on behalf of the state of Nevada, and that’s my commitment. I can’t walk away from that right now,” she said. more

  1. Lady is smarter than she appears. Why hitch your wagon to a sure loser? Biden is a dottering old demented fool who is unelectable, and even the zombie brain dead dems know it. Jill needs to be brought up on elder abuse charges. Unconscionable.

  2. Joey’ll choose his running mate when they tell him who it is.
    Not a moment before.

  3. “Biden is a dottering old demented fool who is unelectable, and even the zombie brain dead dems know it.”

    If that’s the case, which it maybe is, then if the Democrats -the ones actually in charge of them- will be wanting to get Trump reelected because they see him as being better to achieve their agenda than with anyone they have to offer.

    When the right is in the figurehead positions of power there is far less resistance to Globalist and Leftist agenda’s than when the left is in those positions.
