Sanders Floats Warren’s Name as Potential Running Mate

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has looked into the future and does not see Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a viable candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020

As five Northeastern states hold presidential primaries today, Democratic aspirant Bernie Sanders floated a very familiar name as a potential running mate if he gained that party’s nomination.

In an appearance this morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” the Vermont senator was asked about which people he would consider as a potential vice president. Sanders initially hesitated about citing people before offering his ideal vice presidential pick.

“I'm not going to commit,” he said, quickly adding, “you have to look at the best candidates you can. But I think, as you know, there are people in life today, Elizabeth Warren, I think, has been a real champion in standing up for working families, taking on Wall Street."

Warren has not offered an endorsement of either Democratic presidential candidate, although she has spoken positively about Sanders’ campaign and was conspicuously absent when the other female Democratic senators banded together for a joint endorsement of Hillary Clinton. According to a CNN report, Clinton aide John Podesta insisted that Clinton would consider a woman as a possible running mate, but he stopped short of specifically citing Warren.
