No handwringing here: The possibility of Hillary Clinton picking Sen. Elizabeth Warren as her running mate is lighting up Democrat-aligned women’s groups, who have no qualms about the political risks of a two-woman ticket. The women who have devoted their careers to getting a woman in the White House say they think the country is ready for two at once — if Clinton decides that Warren is the best choice.

Planned Parenthood, the Human Rights Campaign and other progressive groups that have endorsed Hillary Clinton are not part of the political establishment, Sen. Bernie Sanders said Thursday, walking back comments he made earlier this week on MSNBC. “That’s not what I meant,” Sanders told NBC News in an interview during his campaign swing through the first-in-the-nation primary state. “We’re a week out in the election, and the Clinton people will try to spin these things.”

In a sign of the strength of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, NARAL Pro-Choice America endorsed her candidacy on Tuesday. “I am honored to earn the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC. As one of our country’s leading advocates for reproductive rights, NARAL’s work is more important than ever,” Clinton said in a statement on Tuesday. “I will stand with NARAL and women across the country in defending access to abortion, contraception, and sex education. I will stand with NARAL in advocating for policies that help women and families. The stakes could not be higher in this election, and I am grateful to the more than 1 million members of NARAL for their support,” she added.
