Democratic Presidential aspirant, Joe Biden, has stated that he would pick a woman as his running mate.
Biden stated this during the democratic debate in Washington DC.
“I commit that I will in fact pick a woman to be vice president,” Biden said during a longer answer about what he would do to support women if he becomes president.
“There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”
When asked by CNN moderator Dana Bash if he was definitely committing to a female running mate, Biden replied, “Yes.”
Bernie Sanders said he was likely to a pick a woman running mate, but he did not commit. “In all likelihood I will” pick a woman, Sanders said.
“My very strong tendency is to move in that direction,” Sanders added.
He also said he would not just want to pick a woman, but make sure “we have a progressive woman.”
In a previous Democratic debate, Biden said that if he is president, he would also appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court for the first time. Biden reiterated that promise during Sunday’s debate, and also said that his Cabinet and administration, “will look like the country.”
