Warren Suggests She’ll Pick a Woman as Running Mate

November 26, 2019

While campaigning in Altoona, Iowa, on Monday, presidential contender Elizabeth Warren signaled that if she wins the Democrat Party’s nomination in 2020, she may choose a female running mate.

“It would be entirely presumptuous of me to talk about running mates,” Sen. Warren answered when asked about it. “But I gotta say — why wouldn’t I have a woman for a running mate?” Back in April, Warren wasn’t leaning either way. “I’d put a woman on my ticket. I’d put a man on my ticket,” she said at the time. “What I want is somebody who’d be in the fight.”

Among her competitors, Kamala Harris called the idea of an all-woman ticket “fabulous” but made no promises: “We’ll see if it happens.” Cory Booker, on the other hand, has vowed to pick a woman: “No matter what, I’m looking you in the eye and saying this: There will be a woman on the ticket.”

Gaffe-prone Joe Biden also hinted at a few possible female running mates, but apparently couldn’t remember them by name.
