    Meet the candidates for Joe Biden's presidential inner circle

    If Joe Biden wins the White House this November, the Democratic presidential candidate's aides have privately hinted he plans to build the most diverse Cabinet in American history. Mr Biden is fond of saying the government should "look like the country" it governs, and his team have suggested that several women and people of colour are in line for top posts under a Biden presidency. Given Mr Biden's age – he would be 78 by the time he took office – the Democrat is also under pressure to ensure a younger generation of rising political talent features in his government picks. Mr Biden has promised to be a president for all Americans, vowing to put an end to the country's deeply polarised society. With that in mind, some have suggested Mr Biden may also include moderate Republicans within his administration, particularly those who have endorsed him during the presidential campaign. But if he is to unite his party behind him, he may have to include leading progressive figures like Bernie Sanders within his administration, a move that could turn away moderate conservatives. With so many competing considerations, and the expectation of a historic Cabinet line-up, who is Mr Biden likely to appoint? Here are the runners and riders for some of the key posts.

But there is a sense that Georgia is among others now in play. The gloves are off in the fight for the Peach State.
