Political oddsmakers are guessing if Sen. Bernard Sanders wins the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination that he is most likely to pick Nina Turner or Stacey Abrams as a running mate.

Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, the nation’s first open lesbian member of the Senate, comes in at +400, Sen. Kamala D. Harris of California is +550, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is at +600.
