Republican Senator drops a major bombshell about who Trump’s VP pick will be

Everyone is dying to know who the former president will pick as his running mate. But thanks to this GOP politician, we may finally have an answer.

Because a Republican Senator dropped a major bombshell about who Trump’s VP pick will be.

Voters have been speculating for months now on who former President Donald Trump will select as his next vice president.

There’s also been rumors that many high-profile Republicans are being currently considered by Trump to be his running mate.

Some of those names include: Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Gov. Doug Burgum (R-ND), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Of those names, Gov. DeSantis is the only one who has stated that he’s not interested in the vice presidential role.

But another name has recently come out as a possible contender for the VP spot.

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) has revealed that it would be an “extreme honor” to serve as vice president under Donald Trump.

Ernst made the comments during a weekend interview on SiriusXM Patriot 125’s Breitbart News Memorial Day Weekend program.

During the interview she was questioned on if she would accept the role of Trump’s running mate if asked to.

“I think there are a lot of really wonderful people who are being considered,” Ernst began in her answer. “And I think that anyone who is offered [the] position, whether it would be me or someone else, I think that it would be such an extreme honor to have that opportunity laid out. I certainly would consider that.”

“I appreciate serving the people of Iowa, I’m so thankful to be in the United States Senate.”

Regardless of Ernst’s willingness to accept the VP spot, it’s most likely that the former president won’t make his official pick until the Republican National Convention in July.

That hasn’t stopped political pundits and GOP politicians from making assumptions on who Trump will pick.

While interviewing with Newsmax’s Eric Bolling, Sen. Scott made an assumption himself about his chances to win the veepstakes.

“I hear there’s a debate in July,” Scott said, a reference to a proposed vice presidential debate between Vice President Kamala Harris and Trump’s running mate.

“If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you. We’ll see what happens.” Bolling then bluntly asked if Scott will end up serving as VP.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” Scott answered.

It’s also been reported by Gov. Burgum, through comments he made to the New York Post, that Trump has 50 candidates to pick from right now.

And that number may have just gone up based off Joni Ernst’s recent comments regarding her role as a vice presidential candidate for Donald Trump.

Stay tuned to the DC Daily Journal.
