Rising Democratic Party stars Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., were tabbed for national security posts late last week, Politico reported.

Warren will join the Armed Services Committee, while Booker will sit on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Politico reported the assignments will give both foreign policy experience ahead of a potential 2020 presidential run.

Neither have announced intentions to contend, but they have been discussed as opponents for President-elect Donald Trump. Both were on Hillary Clinton's short list for Vice President earlier this year.

"I'm excited about these committee assignments because they will enable me to keep fighting to strengthen America's national security, ensure equal justice, and expand economic opportunity for all," Booker said in a statement.

Warren must be ratified by the Senate before joining the committee.

"As a member of the Committee, I will focus on making sure Congress provides effective support and oversight of the Armed Forces, monitors threats to national security, and ensures the responsible use of military force around the globe," she said in a statement.
