Who Will Donald Trump Pick as His Vice-President?

Summary: The race for Donald Trump’s vice-presidential candidate is intensifying, with a range of potential contenders vying for the position. Former Vice President Mike Pence will not be selected, given their fallout over the 6 January 2021 Capitol riot.

Among the rumored names in the mix is Senator Tim Scott, who has thrown his support behind Trump after initially being a rival. Scott’s optimistic conservatism and rousing remarks at a Trump campaign rally have positioned him as a top contender for the vice-presidential role.

The anticipation surrounding Donald Trump’s choice for vice-president is reaching a fever pitch. As the unofficial Republican presidential nominee (pending formal approval at the party’s convention this summer), Trump has been teasing crowds with a lengthy shortlist of potential candidates. However, tradition dictates that we still have months before learning his final selection.

One certainty is that former Vice President Mike Pence will not be joining the ticket. The fallout from the 6 January 2021 Capitol riot has strained their relationship, and Pence does not plan to vote for his old boss in November.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the names rumored to be in contention:

  1. Tim Scott: Once a rival of Donald Trump, Senator Tim Scott has since thrown his support behind the former president. As arguably the most prominent black Republican in the country, Scott pitched his brand of optimistic conservatism during the party’s primary contest. Despite struggling to raise money and lackluster debate performances, he quickly endorsed Trump. His rousing remarks at a Trump campaign rally before the New Hampshire primary elevated him as a top contender for the vice-presidential role. Scott’s endorsement of Trump was heartfelt: “We need Donald Trump,” he told voters, standing directly behind Trump during his victory speech. The former president responded with a smile, saying, “That’s why you’re a great politician.” Since then, Trump has praised Scott’s advocacy on his behalf1.
  2. Other Contenders: While Scott stands out, there are other potential contenders. New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who has become one of Trump’s most loyal defenders, is near the top of the hopefuls. Additionally, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, known for her appearances on Fox News and defiance of pandemic restrictions, once topped a poll among Trump diehards. The shortlist also includes Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
