A hacked email published by WikiLeaks revealed on Tuesday the “first cut of people” the Hillary Clinton campaign was considering for vice president.
The list of 39 people was sent by campaign chairman John Podesta to Clinton on March 17 – two days after Clinton’s successful March 15 Democratic primary romp – and included a mix of accomplished businesspeople and politicians.
Clinton’s top aides – including Huma Abedin, Robby Mook, and Cheryl Mills – selected the people, according to the email.
Podesta said in the email that he “organized names in rough food groups.”
Here’s the full list, in the same way it was sent to Clinton:
Javier Becerra Julian Castro Eric Garcetti Tom Perez Ken Salazar
Tammy Baldwin Kirsten Gillibrand Amy Klobuchar Claire McKaskill [sic] Jeanne Shaheen Debbie Stabenow Elizabeth Warren
Michael Bennet Sherrod Brown Martin Heinreich Tim Kaine Terry McAuliffe Chris Murphy Tom Vilsack
Steve Benjamin Corey [sic] Booker Andrew Gillum Eric Holder Deval Patrick Kasim Reed Anthony Foxx
John Allen Bill McCraven Mike Mullen
Mary Barra Michael Bloomberg Ursula Burns Tim Cook Bill Gates Melinda Gates Muhtar Kent Judith Rodin Howard Schultz
