Hillary Clinton is vetting a retired four-star admiral as a possible pick to be her running mate, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
A person familiar with the vetting process told The Times that James G. Stavridis, who previously served as NATO's supreme allied commander, was being considered for the position.
The news was confirmed by MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell.
Others rumored to be on Clinton's short list include Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Tim Kaine of Virginia.
Over the weekend, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was reported to be seriously considering retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to serve as his running mate.
Flynn told Business Insider in a Monday interview that it was an "honor" to be among those in the conversation.
