A running mate is a person running for a subordinate position on a joint ticket during an election.
In cases like this, the governor and lieutenant governor are not considered running mates because they are not elected on the same ticket.
Running mates are often chosen to balance the ticket.
Mate (beverage) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2026 words)
Mate (pronounced /'ma.te/) is a highly caffeinated infusion prepared by steeping dried leaves of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) in hot water.
Drinking mate with a metal straw from a shared hollow calabash gourd is a common social practice in Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and southern Brazil.
Then the mate is turned upside-down, and shaken vigorously, but briefly and with gradually decreasing force, in this inverted position causing the finest, most powdery particles of the yerba to settle toward the preparer's palm and the top of the mate.
