Hillary Clinton met with three potential running mates at her home in Washington last Friday, including Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, as she and her aides conferred on selecting a vice presidential candidate ahead of the party’s national convention, according to people familiar with the talks.

As well as Warren and Hickenlooper — a favorite of the Democratic Party’s progressive wing — Clinton met with Housing Secretary Julian Castro, according to the people, who asked for anonymity to discuss the private talks. The list of contenders for the vice presidential nomination is also said to include Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, Labor Secretary Tom Perez and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
