Speculations have been swirling as to who Trump could possibly choose as a running mate were he to run for president again in 2024.
Some said Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis would be an excellent choice while others suggested going full MAGA with Rep. Jim Jordan or Marjorie Taylor Greene.
There’s even been some discussion of Trump asking Pence to run with him again even though the relationship was severely damaged following the rigged 2024 election.
However, thanks to a few inside sources and credible rumors swirling around D.C., it appears Joe Biden may not be the only President to run alongside a female Veep.
Former President Donald Trump has narrowed down his search for a new running mate and has revealed to some insiders that he’s made his choice.
America First lawmaker Rep. Elise Stefanik from New York will reportedly run alongside Trump in what will likely be another rematch against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Trump’s inner circle has allegedly begun to talk about Stefanik, the third-ranking Republican in the House and chair of the House Republican Conference (HRC), potentially joining the ticket.
Two of the sources said Trump has been asking friends and allies for their thoughts on Stefanik, believing she has shed her former moderate persona and become a prominent figure in the MAGA-wing of the party.
“She has been talked about in circles close to him as a potential vice president,” one source said.
Stefanik replaced Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney as the chair of the House Republican Conference after the latter was voted out of the position. Cheney became a fierce critic of Trump in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot.
Meanwhile, former Vice President Mike Pence has not ruled out a 2024 presidential run of his own, which Trump said he “wouldn’t be concerned” about.
“People are very disappointed in Mike, and if he ran, I don’t think that would be a problem,” Trump said in a Tuesday interview.
Choosing Stefanik as a running mate is a win-win for Trump.
He opens up the possibility of more women becoming open-minded about another Trump presidency and also secures a leading America First voice in the White House.
