Clinton Meets with Warren amid VP Speculation
After Donald Trump chose Mike Pence as his vice president, Hillary Clinton met with Elizabeth Warren on Friday, fueling rumors that she is going to pick her as her vice president.
The Hill reports:
They met at Clinton’s home in Washington, D.C., NBC’s Monica Alba reported. The meeting reportedly lasted about an hour.
It’s the second time in recent weeks that Warren has visited the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s home. Members of the media closely followed Warren’s private meeting with Clinton last month after the Massachusetts senator formally endorsed her.
Warren wasn’t the only potential running mate who met with Clinton on Friday.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper also met with Clinton at her D.C. home for about an hour, according to NBC News.
Late last month, the Democratic governor said he “briefly” spoke with the former secretary of State about her search for a vice presidential candidate while Clinton was in Denver.
ABC News reports that Clinton also met with Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro.
“On Friday, Secretary Clinton held a series of campaign-related meetings at her Washington home, including several about her vice presidential selection process,” Brian Fallon, a Clinton campaign spokesman, said in a statement.
Clinton is thought to be in the final stages of picking a vice presidential candidate. She campaigned with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine earlier this week.
Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his VP pick on Friday.
Some polls this week have shown a tight race between Trump and Clinton in swing states ahead of both parties’ national conventions.
Clinton’s former rival for the nomination, Bernie Sanders, endorsed her on Tuesday.
