Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) had a great comeback when asked who would be her running mate if she wins the Democratic primary.
Warren was taking questions at a campaign event in Lebanon, New Hampshire this past Sunday and someone asked her about her possible running mate because he wanted to know “What tag team is going to beat the monster?”
“Do you whisper into Bailey’s ear: ‘Who is going to be my Mike Pence? Who is going to look at me with adoring eyes?'” the person asked, referring to her dog.
“I already have a dog,” Warren responded, getting cheers from the crowd.
Elizabeth Warren straight-up called Mike Pence a dog.
Q: Do you ask “Who is going to be my Mike Pence, who will look at me with adoring eyes?”
"I already have a dog…"
Crowd goes nuts.
"You gotta watch these feisty women!"

She then explained that she doesn’t want a vice president who will make her feel better – she wants someone who will be “in the fight” with her.
“I want people who are there because they believe in public service,” Warren explained. “I want people who are gonna be good partners in this fight. I want people who are willing to pick up the tools that are already there and to use them on behalf of the public.”
“I want people who have ideas. I want people who have worked in the fields. 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.”
Warren ended up in fourth place in New Hampshire’s primary with 9.3% of the votes, behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).
