Clinton and Warren meet as VP decision looms

(link to post)

Hillary Clinton met with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Friday at her Washington, D.C., home, as the presumptive Democratic nominee makes her final decisions about her running mate.

Warren arrived at Clinton’s residence at 1:30 p.m. and left about an hour later, according to a report. She was accompanied by a single staffer.

This is not the first time Warren has me privately with Clinton in D.C., as the two huddled together in June following the Massachusetts senator’s endorsement of the former secretary of state. The two also campaigned together during a raucous rally in Ohio on June 27, upping speculation that Clinton would chose Warren as her vice president.

On the campaign trail, Warren has been a constant critic of Trump, consistently calling him things such as “a small, insecure, money grubber who fights for no one but himself,” and “a nasty man who will never become president of the United States.” The Massachusetts senator is also revered in progressive circles as well as among younger voters, traits that will help Clinton reassure Bernie Sanders followers.

Clinton is expected to announce her running mate pick sometime in the next week before heading to the Democratic National Convention. Other politicians being vetted for the spot include Labor Secretary Tom Perez, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.
