Former Vice President Joe Biden has made his choice for a running mate and has informed top campaign aides of his decision, multiple people tell CBS News.

The campaign is in the process of informing top Democrats that he has made a decision. Those aware that a decision has been made did not know who Biden has selected, but said an announcement is expected soon.

Representative Karen Bass of California, who was among those who were vetted for the role, was informed on Tuesday afternoon that she had not been selected, her office told CBS News. Bass has served in the House for nearly a decade and chairs the Congressional Black Caucus.

This is a developing story and will be updated. Kimberly Brown and Cara Korte contributed reporting.
