Hillary Clinton Says She Wouldn’t Be Bloomberg’s Running Mate
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that she would not be former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s running mate, should he win the Democratic Party nomination.
Clinton was asked if she would consider being his vice president during a Clinton Global Initiative event in Puerto Rico on Tuesday.
“Oh no,” Clinton responded. “I’m just waiting and watching as this plays out. I will support whoever the nominee is.”
On Saturday, Matt Drudge reported that Bloomberg was considering the former First Lady as his pick.
The Bloomberg campaign responded to the report by saying “we are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation.”
When asked during an interview with Ellen Degeneres earlier this month if she would consider a VP run with whoever the nominee ends up being, Clinton responded that she will “never say never.”
“I never say never because I do believe in serving my country — but it’s not going to happen,” Clinton said.
