The 9/1 SpreadEx odds have Lance Bottoms with the 4th shortest odds on the Vice Presidential nominee list.

Lance Bottoms has been praised for her response to civil unrest in her city.

Unrest and looting occurred Friday evening in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white officer in Minneapolis pressed a knee into his neck.  That officer has since been charged with murder.

“When Dr. King was assassinated, we didn’t do this to our city,” Bottoms said Friday night. “If you care about this city, then go home.”

Bottoms addressed the crowds both as a mayor and a mother. 

“I am a mother to four black children in America, one of whom is 18 years old,” Bottoms said. “When I saw the murder of George Floyd, I hurt like a mother.” 

When she heard of the potential of protests, Bottoms said she called her son to find out where he was.

“I said, ’I cannot protect you and black boys shouldn’t be out today,’” she said.

Her message to protesters: “You’re not going to out-concern me ... about where we are in America. I wear this each and every day.”

Lance Bottoms finds herself in the middle of a perfect storm, and it's not just the civil unrest.

Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large, had her pinned as the 6th most likely choice to run along side presumptive Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden (and that was before her weekend remarks):

If the Atlanta mayor winds up as Biden's pick, she should send a thank you note to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, who continues to say and do things that a) draw national attention and b) afford KLB a chance to push back hard in a variety of media outlets. Kemp's latest? His attempt to recruit the Republican National Convention to Atlanta following President Trump's criticism of North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper's approach to reopening the state. (The Republican National Convention is supposed to be in Charlotte in late August. "It was surprising to hear that, because there is a certain amount of coordination that has to go on as it relates to public safety, KLB told CNN's Wolf Blitzer about Kemp's recruitment attempt. "But more importantly, we just aren't there yet."
