The Sanders and Clinton camps are now in discussions to help unify the party in advance of next month's Democratic convention.

Ms Warren endorsed Ms Clinton last week after the latter swept up the majority of the votes in the final round of democratic state primaries, clinching the number of delegates she needed to become the presumptive nominee.

Ms Warren's policies are closely in line with that of Mr Sanders, however, being mostly populist and progressive. Ms. Warren threw her support behind Clinton last week.

Clinton is the presumptive presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. However, a senior adviser to Sanders said Sanders isn't interested in the VP job nor is he expecting it to be offered.

Following the meeting, the Sanders campaign said in a statement the two had a "positive discussion about how best to bring more people into the political process and about the risky threat that Donald Trump poses to our nation". Sanders was not included among the individuals vetted by the Democratic Party for the vice presidential position.

Beyond the MA senator, other prospective candidates include Labor Secretary Tom Perez; Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro; Sens.

Other senators being considered for the role include Tim Kaine of Virginia, Sherrod Brown of OH, and Cory Booker of New Jersey. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as her running mate, but Sen. Xavier Becerra and Tim Ryan are also being looked at, according to the Journal. "There are a lot of really qualified, dynamic candidates, I'm sure, to be considered for vice president".
