Ever since the race narrowed to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, activists hoping for diversity on the ticket have set their sights on the second-in-line.

And the Veepstakes are in full swing.

On Tuesday, She the People, a group focused on increasing political power among women of color, released the findings of a survey they conducted with members about their top choices for vice president.

At the top of the list: Stacey Abrams and Kamala Harris.

Women of color are the party’s most loyal constituency and the remaining candidates – both white men – are facing mounting pressure to select a woman and/or a person of color as a running mate.

The She the People poll included several elected officials and politicians – all women of color. Among them were: Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Val Demings and Tammy Duckworth.

Earlier on Wednesday, a group of influential Democratic leaders sent a letter to the Democratic National Committee demanding that the next nominee commit to choosing a woman to be his vice president and to filling at least half of the administration’s cabinet positions with women.
