Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Tuesday he’ll choose his running mate during “the first week in August” — next week.
“I’m going to have a choice the first week in August and I promise I’ll let you know when I do,” Biden told reporters in Wilmington, Del., where he’d just unveiled his plan to combat racial inequality in the United States.
Asked if he was meeting with finalists, he said, “I’m going to try to figure out how to trick you all so I can meet with them in person. You got crews outside my house.”
The comments were in keeping with Biden’s previously announced timeline — he’s said he would make his selection before the Democratic National Convention, which starts on Aug. 17th in Milwaukee.
