Stacey Abrams has shot down rumors that she may join Joe Biden’s ticket as his running mate, with an adviser telling BuzzFeed News Thursday that the former vice president’s offer was “exploitative.”

"What makes it particularly exploitative is that Biden couldn’t be bothered to endorse Stacey in the gubernatorial primary," the adviser said. "Now he wants her to save his ass. That’s some serious entitlement."

Advisers to Biden floated the idea of choosing Abrams to Axios last week, since the popular Georgia Democrat would bring diversity and excitement to the ticket.

Abrams on Wednesday rejected the rumors during an appearance on “The View.”

 “I think you don’t run for second place,” she said. “If I’m going to enter a primary, then I’m going to enter a primary. If I don’t enter a primary, my job is to make certain the best Democrat becomes the nominee and, whoever wins the primary, that we make certain that person gets elected in 2020.”

“Running in a primary to be the vice president is very different than someone who has been selected by the party to be the nominee asking you to serve as a partner,” Abrams went on. “I am open to all options.”

Abrams and Biden met privately in early March.
