It's being reported that former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams may be the vice presidential running mate for Joseph R. Biden, according to Axios.

Looking ahead to possible 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, former Vice President Joe Biden is in the lead among New York State voters. But the decision poses considerable risk, and some advisers are flatly opposed. After referring to himself as part of the field of presidential hopefuls, he corrected himself, saying instead that he could run. Advisers also know that the move would be perceived as a gimmick'.

The choice of Abrams would be advantageous to Biden in a number of ways. Biden would also be the early front-runner, according to polling.

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. The news of the meeting triggered a wave of speculation that their political fortunes could intertwine next year.

Fed Signals Rate Hikes May Be Over For 2019
But at his news conference, Powell played down that prospect. " Patient means that we see no need to rush to judgment", he said. Reports emerged that Trump was even contemplating trying to fire Powell, who had been his hand-picked choice to lead the Fed.

The leaders noted that Biden's foreign policy track record and longtime commitment to the transatlantic alliance would be a sure way to fix the damage done by President Donald Trump's policy of disengagement, the report said.

Biden is said to be laying the groundwork for a one-day donation blitz, similar to what current candidates Bernie Sanders and Beto O'Rourke launched in the first 24 hours after declaring their bids.

The thinking behind this pick would be to show that Biden "isn't just another old white guy", a source told Axios.

While Biden is likely to enter the 2020 presidential race, the encouragement from worldwide leaders fueled his appetite, according to a Democratic Party official.
