Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would choose a woman to be his running mate if he is the Democratic presidential nominee while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said he was considering it.
“If I’m elected president, my Cabinet, my administration will look like the country,” Biden said at the Democratic presidential debate on Sunday. “I commit that I will … pick a woman to be vice president. There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”
Biden, 77, has already floated several possibilities whom he could pick as his running mate, including former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams of Georgia.
Sanders, 78, did not fully commit to selecting a woman as a running mate but said, “In all likelihood, I will.”
