Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) gave an open-ended response to questions about whether he is being vetted as a potential vice presidential nominee by the Hillary Clinton campaign in an interview with CNN on Sunday morning.
The freshman senator was asked by CNN’s Brianna Keilar whether he was being vetted and responded by deferring to the Clinton camp. “I’m just referring questions about the vice presidency to the woman that’s going to have to make this decision,” he said. “You should talk to the Hillary Clinton campaign. What I do know is that on the Democratic side, there are many fabulous candidates — people that could be really strong vice presidential candidates.”
“That is not a no, sir,” Keilar responded. “That is not a no.”
“That is exactly what it is,” Booker said with a smile. “It’s telling you if you have a question like that, please direct it to the Clinton campaign.”
Keilar went on, “I think I may have gotten the answer that I need from that, actually.”
