NEW: plans for Biden's VP roll-out are underway...even if there is no candidate yet. As we enter the homestretch of VP search, important to remember that on issues big and small, Joe Biden is a man who cannot be rushed -- and this is a big one My memo:

Coons on where Biden is in the process: “He’s taking the time to make sure that he gets the inputs that he would value, both a chance to hear from people who know well&have worked closely w/the different candidates, but also time to talk to them directly”

Harry Reid: “My knowledge is, I think he knows within two or three people who he feels comfortable with. He’ll have to narrow it down to number one. He’s the only one who can do that.”


Beto was not kidding about taking Biden to Whataburger

New Biden statement: “The Trump Administration is currently responsible for one of the most significant failures of governance of any administration in modern history. It failed to heed warnings and adequately prepare our nation”

NEW: “the lying,the craziness, the bullying — I’m willing to pay more money in taxes just to be away from him.” On the center-right voters who went third party or wrote in in 2016, coming off the sidelines to vote for Biden>

Biden today, per pooler @JTHVerhovek  : " on the day I am officially elected, before I'm sworn in -- even though he'll probably contest we didn't win -- I'm going to immediately have to be on the phone with key European and Asian leaders to tell them America's back."

a doctor friend in Denver texts: "it's quickly going from quietly ominous to an actual mess in the hospital" with healthy young adults intubated for Covid

New:John Lewis endorses Biden. Asked whether Biden should pick a woman of color as VP. “Biden should look around..would be good to have a woman of color. It would be good to have a woman. It would be good to have a woman who looks like the rest of America
