Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has just announced she has tested positive for the coronavirus. Bottoms is believed to be on Democratic presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden’s short list for Vice President.

“COVID-19 has literally hit home. I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive,” Bottoms posted to Twitter minutes ago.

“We’ve taken all of the precautions that you can possibly take,” Mayor Bottoms just said on MSNBC.

“I feel fine,” she said, noting just an occasional headache and seasonal allergies.
