Atlanta mayor – and maybe, hopefully, probably the Vice Presidential running mate for Joe Biden – Keisha Lance Bottoms announced today that she has tested positive for the coronavirus.
“COVID-19 has literally hit home,” Bottoms said in a tweet. “I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive.”
Bottoms, 50, has gained national attention in recent weeks for her kick-ass handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the nationwide protest movement against police brutality and racism, both of which have had major impacts on Atlanta.
Bottoms, along with Kamala Harris, Stacy Abrams, and Tammy Duckworth, is at the top of the running to become the VP pick for Biden. Biden is expected to announce his selection by early August. By which time she should be out of quarantine, on her feet, and ready to kick ass.
