Joe Biden Promises to Pick a Female Running Mate

Per USAToday, Joe Biden committed to picking a woman as his running mate during Sunday’s televised Democratic presidential debate while Sen. Bernie Sanders said “in all likelihood” he would also choose a female vice presidential candidate if he’s the nominee.

“My administration will look like the country and I commit that I will in fact pick a woman to be vice president,” the former vice president said. “There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I will pick a woman as my vice president.”

Sanders said, “For me it’s not just nominating a woman, it’s making sure we have a progressive woman. And there are progressive women out there. So, my very strong tendency is to move in that direction.”

According to the betting markets of PredictIt, the current money for running mate candidates are Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Stacey Abrams.

Hillary Clinton is #9.
