More speculation on a running mate for “nominee” (see: previous post) Donald Trump, as friends and allies are pushing for a woman or a Black man to fill the slot. Suggested individuals include South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Sen. Tim Scott, and Ben Carson. Two other Trump loyalists Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Kari Lake were also mentioned. The report notes that they both received an enthusiastic welcome during recent appearances in New Hampshire.
Despite having claimed on Jan. 10 that he knew who his running mate would be, Trump continues to solicit opinions from friends and advisors on a regular basis.
From the report:
Trump is looking for loyalty and deference in a running mate, the close Trump ally said. Remember whose name is on the side of the plane,” the ally said.
