VEGAS: Odds Of Clinton Becoming Biden’s VP Surges

Former Vice President Joe Biden is almost the presumed nominee for the Democratic Party to square against President Trump and Vice President Pence this November.

While it is still early, many political pundits are already discussing who Biden will select to join him on the ballot.

New Vegas odds have ten candidates likely to receive a nod to join him, with the top five candidates all being women.

The Washington Examiner reports one name that has recently surged on the list is former Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Clinton is now fifth on the list after having “roared back into the public spotlight with a new Hulu feature,” per the report.

And, “She has also embraced former Vice President Joe Biden’s recent string of victories over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whom she has drubbed with a string of negative comments.”

The odds of Clinton becoming the eventual vice presidential candidate stand at 16-1, matching that of former 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg who is ranked sixth.

Senator and former 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris tops the list at a whopping 2-1 odds. Amy Klobuchar, also a senator and former 2020 presidential candidate, sits at 3-1 odds. Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams sits at 6-1 odds, with Elizabeth Warren taking fourth with 12-1 odds.

Here’s the full list, per the Washington Examiner:
