Hillary Clinton met with Elizabeth Warren on Friday amid a string of conversations with advisers aimed at closing in on a running mate, according to multiple reports. Since Warren has an early speaking spot at the DNC, it is expected she will not be Clinton’s running mate.
They met at Clinton’s home in Washington, D.C., NBC’s Monica Alba reported. The meeting reportedly lasted about an hour.
It’s the second time in recent weeks that Warren has visited the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s home. Members of the media closely followed Warren’s private meeting with Clinton last month after the Massachusetts senator formally endorsed her.
Warren wasn’t the only potential running mate who met with Clinton on Friday. She also met with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, also at her DC home, and also for about an hour.
Late last month, the Democratic governor said he “briefly” spoke with the former secretary of State about her search for a vice presidential candidate while Clinton was in Denver.
ABC News reports that Clinton also met with Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro.
So were these meetings to tell these people in person that they wouldn’t be her running mate? Probably, since Clinton is expected to choose Tim Kaine as her running mate.
