LEBANON, N.H. (Reuters) – Democratic U.S. Senator Cory Booker all but guaranteed at a campaign event on Friday that he will pick a woman as his running mate if he wins his party’s nomination for president next year.
“I am very confident that this election, we will make history, because no matter what – I’m looking you in the eye when I say this – there will be a woman on the ticket,” he told a voter at a pub in Lebanon, New Hampshire, after she noted there has never been a female U.S. president or vice president.
“I don’t know if it’s the vice president’s position or the president’s position,” he continued. “If I have my way, there will be a woman on the ticket.”
