Joe Biden Narrows Down VP List, Karen Bass Emerges as Key Contender The chair of the Congressional Black Caucus has become a frontrunner after intensive lobbying by her House colleagues. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Bass should not be overlooked, while many others have painted her as universally liked and highly respected.
