Sen. Elizabeth Warren told MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" Wednesday she would become former Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden's running mate if he asked her.

Bernie Sanders, Axios' Alexi McCammond notes. Biden has committed to choosing a woman as his running mate. Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has said she would be "honored" to be Biden's choice.
