Yahoo reports,  Amy Klobuchar had a slip of tongue when speaking to a crowd of supporters, suggesting she might be Joe Biden‘s pick for vice president.

The Minnesota senator was speaking at a campaign rally for Mr Biden on Saturday in Michigan when she sparked the rumors.

“I could not think of a better way to end my candidacy, as hard as it was to do with our beloved staff and everyone else, than to join the tick–” she’s heard saying to the crowd.

It sounded like Ms Klobuchar wanted to say the word “ticket”, hinting she could join Mr Biden as his vice president pick.

People in the Grand Rapids crowd thought the same thing, and they started cheering and chanting the senator’s name.
