Sanders Dodges Saying Whether He’d Be Clinton’s Running Mate


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) dodged saying in an interview aired Sunday whether he would be Hillary Clinton’s running mate if she wins the Democratic presidential nomination.

Sanders was asked on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” if he would take the call from Clinton if she asked him to be her vice president.

“Well, right now, again, here we are in California, I’m knocking my brains out to win the Democratic nomination,” Sanders said.

Sanders said his focus right now is winning the nomination. But, he did say who he would like to see be Clinton’s running mate if he doesn’t win the nomination.

“So I would hope, if I am not the nominee, that the vice presidential candidate will not be from Wall Street, will be somebody who has a history of standing up and fighting for working families, taking on the drug companies whose greed is doing so much harm, taking on Wall Street, taking on corporate America, and fight for a government that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent,” Sanders said.
