During an interview on Tuesday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who is rumored to be considering a 2020 presidential run of his own, said that he would be Oprah Winfrey’s vice presidential running-mate if she asked.

Oprah has generated considerable 2020 presidential buzz following her speech at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

During a call-in interview with “Ebro In The Morning,” Booker was asked if he would consider being Oprah’s running mate in 2020 instead of running for president himself.

“Well, that’s not how it necessarily works, to be frank. You’ve got to win a nomination first,” Booker responded.

The hosts of the show weren’t having any of Booker’s non-answer, pointing out to the New Jersey Senator that this was Oprah after all.

“So I will play along and say this. If we get to a point one day as unlikely as frankly it is because she has indicated I don’t think she’s necessarily interested in the job, should she be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States and she calls me up to be her VP. Let’s make some news. I would have a hard time saying no to her,” Booker responded.
