Sen. Warren could be Hillaryâ€™s running mate
Ms. Warren, is a leading progressive voice among Democrats.
Hillary Clinton is considering U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren for her running mate for the Democratic presidential ticket, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing several people familiar with the process.
Ms. Warren, a leading progressive voice among Democrats, is among those Democratic presidential candidate Ms. Clinton is vetting for the vice presidential position, the newspaper reported.
Sources told Reuters earlier this month that Ms. Warren, who represents Massachusetts, is considering the potential role.
Ms. Clinton is the Democratic Partyâ€™s presumptive nominee for the Nov. 8 presidential election, having won the last primary contest this week in the District of Columbia.
Although Ms. Clinton and Mr. Sanders met this week, the senator from Vermont did not plan to end his campaign or endorse Ms. Clinton in a video speech to supporters scheduled for later on Thursday, his spokesman said.
While the search for a potential partner in the race is still in its early stages, WSJ reported several Democrats said Ms. Clintonâ€™s campaign is looking at a number of potential candidates, including Ms. Warren. Other prospective running mates include U.S. Labor Secretary Tom Perez and U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary JuliÃ n Castro, according to the report. Ms. Warren threw her support behind Clinton last week.
Ms. Warren could help Ms. Clinton win over Sanders supporters from the partyâ€™s more liberal wing after a surprisingly protracted primary race.
