Former Vice President Joe Biden told reporters on Tuesday that he would be naming his running mate for the 2020 presidential campaign sometime next week.

The presumptive Democratic nominee previously promised he would be selecting a woman to serve as Vice President and reports have indicated his team is vetting four black women as potential candidates.

Reps. Val Demings (D-FL) and Karen Bass (D-CA) are among them, along with former President Barack Obama's National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

The most speculation has surrounded Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a former rival during the early stages of the Democratic primary.

With the decision looming, Biden told reporters with MSNBC that he plans to meet each of the finalists in person, saying he will have "personal discussions with each of the candidates who are left and make a decision."
