Joe Biden Says He Will Select A Woman As Vice President During D.C. Debate

Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden said he plans to pick a woman as his running mate if he secures the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump.

“I would pick a woman to be my vice president,” said during Sunday night’s debate against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Biden leads Sanders in both the delegate count and public polling and is heavily favored to secure the nomination.

Sanders suggested he was inclined to pick a woman as his running mate, but did not make the same commitment.

“In all likelihood, I would,” he said.

No woman has ever served as president or vice president. Only one woman, New York Rep. Geraldine Ferraro, has ever been a major party nominee for vice president.
