Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has withdrawn from the running to be Joe Biden's vice-presidential pick.
In an interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell Thursday evening, Klobuchar said she believes the Democratic presidential nominee should pick a woman of color to be his running mate.
Currently, California senator Kamala Harris is the favorite to be named Biden's Veep pick, with Klobuchar saying picking a woman of color is all the more vital considering the events of recent weeks.
"America must seize on the moment and I truly believe — as I actually told the VP last night when I called him — that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket," Klobuchar told O'Donnell.
"And there are so many incredible, qualified women. But if you wanna heal this nation right now, my party yes, but our nation, this is a helluva way to do it."
Klobuchar had been one of the front runners for the pick, with her decision to withdraw from the Democratic presidential race and endorse Biden proving crucial in Biden's primary win in Minnesota over Bernie Sanders.
