Booker: I Will Be ‘Looking To Women First’ For Potential Running Mate


Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who announced this month he is running for president, said Tuesday he would prioritize finding a female running mate if he is the Democratic nominee.

Booker told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow that while he does not want to box himself in, he would be “looking to women first” as his pick for vice president.

The New Jersey Democrat is running in a primary field with unprecedented diversity, with six women already running for president as well as multiple candidates of color.

Booker is one of several high-profile candidates who have already announced their intention to run. Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), along with several others, have already announced their presidential bids, with heavyweights such as former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) still considering whether to jump in.
