The first lesbian vice president? U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin says that if Joe Biden asks her to be his running mate, she’ll accept.
On Thursday’s edition of The View, cohost Whoopi Goldberg asked Baldwin about rumours the Wisconsin senator has been interviewed and vetted for the number 2 spot, for which Biden has promised to choose a woman.
“Would you take it if it was offered?” Goldberg asked.
“Look, my single focus is making sure that Joe Biden becomes the next president of the United States, and I want to help him in any way I can,” said Baldwin, “If he were to ask me to be his running mate, I certainly would.”
Baldwin also said she was “filled with joy” by the recent Supreme Court ruling that job discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is illegal, while she noted that the Equality Act is still needed because discrimination happens in other aspects of life, such as housing and public accommodations.
