Joe Biden is set to announce a committee to oversee his vice presidential selection process and is already thinking about whom he’d choose to join his Cabinet.

Biden made the disclosure Friday during a virtual fundraiser.

He holds a significant lead in delegates over primary rival Bernie Sanders but hasn't officially clinched the Democratic presidential nomination. He said he’s spoken to Sanders to let him know he’d be working on the vice presidential vetting process.

Biden said he doesn't want Sanders to think he's “being presumptuous” by choosing a running mate. But he added that the vice presidential vetting process “takes time,” so he has to begin this month.
