Clinton to text VP choice on Friday
WASHINGTON (AP) – Hillary Clinton will reveal her vice presidential choice today in a text message to supporters and then appear with her running mate for the first time at a rally in Miami tomorrow.
That’s according to a person familiar with the process who spoke on condition of anonymity, because they were not authorized to discuss publicly the campaign’s internal plans.
The person did not say who Clinton would name as her running mate. The timing was first reported by NBC News.
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine has emerged as the leading contender to become Clinton’s vice president, according to Democratic sources familiar with her plans. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is also under consideration, among a few others.
Clinton was kicking off a two-day swing through Florida on Friday with stops in Orlando and Tampa.
