Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has made it clear that he will be releasing the name of his running mate before the upcoming Republican National Convention. Now, a group of GOP insiders have revealed the most likely person he will choose: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Donald Trump has one month to pick a running mate, and Republican swing-state insiders are deeply divided over who he should choose.
GOP members of The POLITICO Caucus – a panel of activists, strategists and operatives in 10 key battleground states – splintered this week when asked to suggest who Trump should select to share the ticket with him this fall.
Gaining the most support were former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (13 percent), Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (9 percent), Ohio Gov. John Kasich (8 percent), former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (8 percent), Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst (7 percent) and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (7 percent).
The Political Insider has reported that Democratic insiders believe Trump’s best choice would be Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). Who do you think he should choose? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
