From the Washington Post:
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Sen. Timothy M. Kaine of Virginia have emerged as the leading candidates among a longer list of finalists Hillary Clinton is considering to be her vice presidential running mate, according to interviews with multiple Democrats with knowledge of her deliberations.
Although her list is not limited to those two, Clinton has spoken highly of both in recent days to friends and advisers as she closes in on an announcement that one aide told CNN is likely to come Friday.
President Obama is among those who have advised Clinton on the decision, offering thoughts on the two contenders who serve on his Cabinet, Vilsack and Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez, several Democrats said. These individuals did not say what advice the president gave.
These and other Democrats cautioned that Clinton has not made a final choice and is keeping mum about her deliberations. Several other people remain in the running, they said. Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon declined to comment.
After making her announcement, Hillary will campaign with her running mate in Florida over the weekend.
