Trump teases shortlist of VP picks

Donald Trump is fueling speculation over his pick for vice president.

Yesterday, during a Fox News Town Hall event, he was asked about a handful of possible choices. They were Governors Ron DeSantis (Fla.) and Kristi Noem (S.D.), Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), Rep. Byron Donalds (Fla.), businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, and even former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii).

Trump said all of them were on his shortlist, but took a special moment to single out Senator Scott.

It remains to be seen how seriously Trump is considering any of these candidates or what other options he might be looking at. A recent Issues and Insights poll showed Desantis as Republicans top choice for Trump’s VP, even if that seems unlikely considering their rivalry in the primaries.
