Clinton Announces Ohio Event with Warren
Hillary Clinton announced on Wednesday that she would be hosting an Ohio event with Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
The Hill reports:
The two will appear together on Monday in Ohio to “discuss their shared commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top,” according to the announcement.
The joint appearance will fuel rumors that Clinton is considering Warren as a running mate.
Reports emerged Tuesday that the Massachusetts senator is on a vice presidential shortlist that also includes Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Housing Secretary Julián Castro.
The announcement came minutes after presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump delivered a scathing speech attacking Clinton as “corrupt” and “pathetic.”
The Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Short said in a statement Wednesday afternoon, “This event will complete one of the biggest sellouts in political history given that Hillary Clinton is everything Elizabeth Warren supposedly stands against. Watching Elizabeth Warren defend Hillary Clinton’s refusal to turn over her Wall Street speech transcripts will be as priceless as the accounts of her attending fundraisers with the same hedge fund managers she built a career demonizing.”
