Joe Biden has been holding online joint events with a number of democratic politicians and public figures during the pandemic. Today he held a joint event with his former democratic primary rival Pete Buttigieg.
During the event, Biden made clear the Buttigieg will play a role in his administration, saying this to Buttigieg: “Be prepared. If I win, you’re not going anywhere.”
This isn’t a surprise. Pete’s term as Mayor of South Bend has come to an end, meaning he’s available, and there are a number of Biden administration jobs he’d be highly qualified for.
To be clear, Joe Biden is not talking about making Mayor Pete his running mate. Biden has repeatedly stated that his running mate will be a woman.
