Here’s what he had to say.
According to Breitbart News, Rep. William Lacy Clay slammed 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden’s potential running mate Stacy Abrams stating it’s “somewhat offensive” and “kind of inappropriate” that she is running and said, “you cannot show up at the winner’s window with loser’s tickets.”
Clay said, “[I]t’s like all of the other presidential candidates, Democratic presidential primary candidates and their supporters, okay, we went through a process. Bernie Sanders has conceded, and this applies to Stacey too.”
He continued, “You know, at the race track, you cannot show up at the winner’s window with loser’s tickets. You haven’t won anything. You can’t show up at the winner’s window with loser’s tickets and demand anything.”
He added, “I’ll tell you what is somewhat offensive to me, is when you are marketing yourself as a VP candidate. Hey, that’s entirely up to the nominee to determine who’s going to be on his ticket with him. And so, for you to be out there marketing and putting on a PR campaign in that way, I think it’s kind of inappropriate.” You can watch a clip of Clay’s remarks here.
