Top GOP senator reveals who Donald Trump’s running mate will be

Senator Tim Scott

Anticipation is greatly building to see who Trump will choose as his VP. But now we may finally have an answer.

As a top GOP senator reveals who Donald Trump’s running mate will be.

For months now, rumors of names that former President Donald Trump might pick to serve as his next vice president have been spread throughout the media.

Some of these names include Govs. Kristi Noem (R-SD), Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and Doug Burgum (R-ND). Other names include Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), and Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH).

But one name that’s been making more headlines recently is Senator Tim Scott (R-SC).

Scott ran a 2024 presidential campaign himself before ultimately dropping out and endorsing Trump.

And now some believe that he’s the front-runner to be picked as the former president’s running mate.

While interviewing with Newsmax’s Eric Bolling, Scott gave a massive hint on whether or not he will be picked to serve as Trump’s VP.

“I hear there’s a debate in July,” Scott said to Bolling, referencing a proposed VP debate between Trump’s eventual running mate and Vice President Kamala Harris.

“If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you. We’ll see what happens.”

Bolling then asked the senator if he will end up being vice president under Donald Trump.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” Scott said while laughing.

Last month, a source told the New York Post that Sen. Scott was doing “everything he can to build his relationship with Donald Trump in an attempt to get picked as VP.”

And Trump has likely noticed these efforts by Scott, saying during a campaign rally that “He’s a much better representative for me than he is a representative for himself.”

“And it’s true. And that’s a great compliment. And you know why? Because he’s a high-quality person. He doesn’t like talking about himself.”

Donald Trump said he will choose his running mate around the time of the Republican National Convention in mid-July.

Over a week ago, Gov. Burgum told the New York Post that based off Trump’s comments to supporters at Mar-a-Lago recently, the former president has 50 candidates to choose from.

So, while Scott seems confident that he may be appearing on the ticket next to Donald Trump, it still seems like there’s a long way to go before an official announcement is made.

Barring something unexpected happening, it’s probably that we won’t know who Trump’s next VP will be until July when the Republican National Convention takes place.
