WikiLeaks hacked e-mail shows the Columbia, SC Mayor Steve Benjamin was among several other high profile African-American politicians leaders who were on Hillary Clinton’s short list for vice president.

Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, and former Attorney General Eric Holder were some of the other prominent African-Americans whose names appeared on the list.

In total the hacked emails revealed a total of 39 names on what is being called Clinton’s ‘First Cut’ VP List.

Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta sent Clinton a “first cut of people to consider for VP” in March. He said this list had been generated with other top aides.

The list of 39 names included business leaders, military brass, Latinos, African-Americans, women and also Bernie Sanders who apparently had his own category.

Podesta organized the list into what he called “food groups.”
