Former Vice President Joe Biden is the frontrunner to win the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. And if he is the man leading the ticket, he already has a group of people in mind as his running mate.
During a debate with Bernie Sanders on Sunday night, Biden committed to picking a woman as his vice president.
“I commit that I will in fact pick a woman to be vice president,” Biden said. “There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”
CNN moderator Dana Bash asked if Biden was committing to a woman vice president, he said “yes.”
The former Vice President then confirmed the news with another message on social media: “My running mate will be a woman,” he wrote.
My running mate will be a woman. #DemDebate

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders also said he would likely choose a woman as his vice president, but he would be sure to make sure it was someone who would help advance his progressive agenda.
