Struggling 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren joked in New Hampshire that Mike Pence is essentially President Trump’s dog.
TheHill reports Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) told a voter that she “already has a dog” when the 2020 White House hopeful was asked about her choice to replace Vice President Pence.
The voter asked Warren at a town hall in Lebanon, N.H., on Sunday if she ever whispers to her dog Bailey, “Who is going to be my Mike Pence?”
“I already have a dog,” Warren responded.
The crowd cheered in response to the senator’s deadpan joke.
Warren went on to describe her ideal type of running mate, and Cabinet members, without naming any potential picks.
“I want people who are there because they believe in public service. I want people who are gonna be good partners in this fight. I want people who are willing to pick up the tools that are already there and to use them on behalf of the public,” she said. “It’s so easy to get discouraged and to say [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell [R-Ky.] just ruins everything. There’s a lot of truth in that, too, but it isn’t everything. There is a lot we can still do.”
Warren also said her ideal vice president is someone “who is going to be in the fight” with her.
