Cumbersome past

But her past as a prosecutor whose measures have, say her detractors, particularly affected minorities, could weigh against her. A candidate for the primary, she had not taken off in polls of African Americans, a key electorate for Democrats, before throwing in the towel in December.

Two other names have been circulating insistently in recent days.

As for Karen Bass, 66, elected to the House of Representatives, she heads the influential group of black elected officials in Congress and has drafted a police reform bill named after George Floyd.

Its positioning could, however, offer ammunition to Republicans, who try to portray Joe Biden as a "puppet" of the "radical left". An argument which could also harm the chances of the progressive senator Elizabeth Warren , 71 years old, arriving further in the forecasts.

- "More important" -
