The comments come just hours after Warren endorsed Biden, her former primary opponent, in the race. 


Warren expanded on her endorsement Wednesday during her interview with Maddow, praising Biden for his empathy that she said would be beneficial in leading the country, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Biden is very different; he is the kind of man who has human empathy,” Warren said. 

“He’s a man who has a good heart and that's what we need in a leader — someone who is steady, who is prepared, but ultimately who cares not just about himself, but cares about everyone," she continued. "That is what's going to get us through this crisis, that is what's going to help us rebuild this country."

Warren has been floated as a possible running mate for Biden, who has already pledged to choose a female running mate. 

Biden said he is considering somewhere between six and 10 candidates for the slot, but it’s unclear if that list includes Warren.
