Abrams, a former Georgia state lawmaker, came close to defeating Republican Brian Kemp for the Georgia governor’s seat in 2018. She said in a speech at the University of Iowa earlier this month that she would be “happy” to run as a vice presidential candidate.

Biden also discussed his time serving as former President Obama’s vice president. He said the most important factor is picking a running mate who aligns with you “philosophically,” USA Today reported.

"We were philosophically in agreement and we strategically agreed on everything. We disagreed on tactics sometimes. And a vice president cannot be in a position even in a cabinet meeting where he or she is taking on the president," Biden said.

"We’ve had arguments, we’ve shouted at each other in private, but we always completely trusted each other," he added.
