Democratic presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke just gave a hint about who he might select as his running mate in the 2020 election.
During a campaign stop, O’Rourke was asked by an audience member if he had any female candidates in mind to serve as his running mate if he secures the Democratic nomination.
The failed Texas senatorial candidate mentioned Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate who still has not conceded her election loss from last November and is around $200,000 in personal debt.

Why would O’Rourke choose someone with so much baggage to potentially serve as his running mate?
Abrams lost her bid for the governor of Georgia against Republican Brian Kemp in a race that garnered national attention.
