During a campaign stopover in New Hampshire ahead of Tuesday’s primary, Massachusetts Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren implied Vice President Mike Pence is a “dog” when asked who she’d pick as a running mate.
Warren was asked by a voter during a Q&A in New Hampshire Monday if she ever asks her dog, Bailey, “Who is going to be my Mike Pence? Who is gonna look at me with adoring eyes?”
Warren responded, “I already have a dog.”

“I want people who are there because they believe in public service. I want people who are gonna be good partners in this fight,” she continued, describing her cabinet picks if she were elected. “I want people who are willing to pick up the tools that are already there and to use them on behalf of the public,” she said. “It’s so easy to get discouraged and to say, ‘Mitch McConnell just ruins everything.’ There's a lot of truth in that, too, but it isn't everything. There is a lot we can still do.”
“I want smart people. ... I want people who have ideas. I want people who have worked in the fields,” she added. “I want people who believe that they can be part of putting government on the side of our citizens instead of on the sides of giant corporations.”
