Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) confirmed Thursday that she has been interviewed by Joe Biden’s team to be the Democratic Party’s vice presidential nominee.

“I have been interviewed, yes, I’m on Team Biden,” Duckworth said during a Washington Post Live interview with reporter Bob Costa. “But it really doesn’t matter what position I play as long as we get Joe Biden elected.”

The senator was referring to talks she’s had with the panel that Biden convened to vet his positional picks, said a person familiar with the selection process who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly about the process.

Duckworth said the interview process has been “positive.” She also made it clear she has been in frequent touch with Biden, saying she’s “always loved interacting with vice president Biden.”

6. Her father is American whose heritage goes back to the revolutionary war. Biden wouldn't be

vetting her now if she wasn't qualified.

I trust Joe Biden more than "the national review" regarding this issue.
