Could Kamala Harris Run on an All-Women Ticket? Here’s One Clue She Might.

In an extreme case of putting the cart before the horse, a top staffer for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), tweeted a cryptic message that appeared to indicate the former prosecutor could select a woman running mate, should she win the Democratic Party’s nomination in 2020.

Harris’s communications director, Lily Adams, responded to a tweet by U.S. News & World Report senior writer Dave Catanese, who asked if a woman can be the party’s standard bearer and also select a female running mate.

“Well we’ve tried two males on a ticket together more than a few times,” Adams tweeted. “[L]et’s try something new.”

We’re nearly a year and a half away from the Democratic National Convention, where the party will formally nominate its choice to take on President Trump. And yet Adams, who is in charge of all communications put out by the Harris campaign, is already implying that the California Democrat may very well pick a woman running mate.

While the notion that Harris, who just formally kicked off her campaign on Sunday at a rally in Oakland, California, would pick a female running mate is not necessarily surprising, it’s a bit presumptuous for her communications director to appear to imply Harris has the nomination in the bag and already has potential VP picks in mind.
