Could Vice-President be in Cory Booker’s future?
Well if people are speculating on recent comments made by Booker, it could be. Over the weekend, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker hinted at being vetted for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, according to The Root.
“I’m just referring questions about the vice presidency to the woman who is going to have to make this decision,” he said on CNN Sunday. “You should talk to the Clinton campaign. What I do know is that on the Democratic side, there are many fabulous candidates–people that could be really strong vice presidential candidates.”
CNN’s Brianna Keilar attempted to get him to elaborate by saying: “That is not a no, sir. That is not a no.”
“That is exactly what it is,” Booker responded. “It’s telling you if you have a question like that, please direct it to the Clinton campaign.”
Well, I guess we’ll get an announcement soon from Clinton’s camp. So far other names mentioned have been VP shortlists are Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Labor Secretary Tom Perez, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro and Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown
