Elizabeth Warren Says She Would Accept Offer to Be Joe Biden’s Running Mate

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she would accept an offer from former Vice President Joe Biden if he asked her to be his running mate.

"If he asked you to be his running mate, would you say yes?" asked MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.

“Yes,” Warren replied, despite clashing with Biden during the primary race.

Warren endorsed Biden on Wednesday.

"Empathy matters. And, in this moment of crisis, it's more important than ever that the next president restores Americans' faith in good, effective government," she said. "Joe Biden has spent nearly his entire life in public service. He knows that a government run with integrity, competence, and heart will save lives and save livelihoods. And we can't afford to let Donald Trump continue to endanger the lives and livelihoods of every American."

Stacey Abrams too:

Former Georgia House Democratic leader Stacey Abrams said she would jump at the opportunity as well.

"I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating typically ignored communities," she told Elle magazine. "I have a strong history of executive and management experience in the private, public and nonprofit sectors. I've spent 25 years in independent study of foreign policy. I am ready to help advance an agenda of restoring America's place in the world. If I am selected, I am prepared and excited to serve."

Biden’s shortlist:

Biden has already committed to picking a female running mate.

According to Politico, Biden has a long list of women he is considering alongside Warren and Abrams.

The former veep’s shortlist includes Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Florida Rep. Val Demings, Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, and Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth.
