Former Vice President Joe Biden is all but assured of getting the Democratic presidential nomination. That means he and his team are in the process of choosing his running mate.

Reports indicate his short list is probably topped by Sens. Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar, plus former Georgia state lawmaker Stacey Abrams.
