Elizabeth Warren To Lead With Klobuchar As Her VP?
The Massachusetts and Minnesota senators saw their stock rise collectively after the last debate in Iowa
The New York Times took the rarely-before seen move of endorsing two candidates to be the next President of the United States – Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.
Oddsmakers have the two leading ladies as +2200 (22/1) and +10000 (100/1) to win, making them fifth and ninth favorites respectively.
Since the announcement was made by the NYT, neither candidate has seen a significant change in their price to win individually.
However, some oddsmakers are offering a Democrat ticket ‘forecast’, where bettors are given the opportunity to bet who they think will be the President & Vice President combination.
On this market, the most likely pairing according to the books is a Biden/Harris ticket at +1000 (10/1).
Warren/Klobuchar was priced at +10000 (100/1) just two days ago but, following the endorsement, has halved to +5000 (50/1), suggesting that oddsmakers believe it is now twice as likely to transpire.
Oddschecker spokesperson Pete Watt: “One of the most memorable moments from Iowa last week was Warren reminding the watching world that the only two candidates on stage to never have lost an election were Amy Klobuchar and herself.
“It seems that these words have resonated with British traders, who have made the decision to halve the odds on what would be the first all-female ticket in American history.
“With the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucus very much on the horizon, the currently fuzzy picture of who will take on Trump is set to become clearer and clearer with each passing week.
