House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California finally endorsed Hillary Clinton ahead of her state’s primary on Tuesday, and even weighed in on the growing calls for the former secretary of state to choose Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren as her running mate.
It would be “fabulous” for two women to be on the ticket, Pelosi said — though she hastened to note that the choice was Clinton’s to make.
“Well I’m a voter in California and I have voted for Hillary Clinton for president of the United States and proud to endorse her for that position,” Pelosi said on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” hours after The Associated Press and television networks said Clinton had reached the necessary number of delegates to clinch the nomination.
Regarding the next steps for Clinton in the general election, Pelosi demurred when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos whether she would advocate for Warren as Clinton’s running mate.
“We’ve had two men over and over again for hundreds of years,” Pelosi said. “I think that two women, whoever they may be, that would be fabulous as well but Hillary Clinton will choose the person that she feels most comfortable with.”
