WASHINGTON – Joe Biden’s campaign is asking some potential vice presidential candidates to submit references as the presumptive Democratic nominee’s team begins the formal vetting process, according to two people with knowledge of the process.
At least one of the candidates who has been asked for references is New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, according to an individual with knowledge of the request.
A spokesman for Lujan Grisham said late Tuesday that the Biden campaign had reached out to her, though not necessarily as a potential vice presidential candidate. Lujan Grisham is vice chairwoman of the Democratic Governors Association, a position that gives her a national profile and puts her on track to lead the group in 2021.
