Democratic presidential contenders are descending upon New Hampshire just ahead of the state's primary.
The candidates are tirelessly speaking with voters and holding campaign events, which has led to some interesting moments.
One of those moments came when Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was asked about her potential pick for Vice President. A spectator asked her who would be her Mike Pence. Specifically, who would look at her with "adoring eyes" the way Vice President Pence looks at President Donald Trump.

His loyalty remains consistent even when Trump throws him under the bus.
Democrats applauded Warren's expert shade.
