Hillary Clinton is expected to announce her vice presidential running mate on Friday, and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine has reportedly emerged as the front-runner.

Sources told Fox News the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has not told Kaine or two others believed to be on her short list who has been eliminated. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday morning that Clinton is believed to be poised to choose Kaine.

In addition to Kaine, Clinton is reportedly considering Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker — a late entry.
