Trump Considers Red State Governor For 2024 Running Mate – Donald Says He Might Tap Florida Gov. Ron Desantis

Even though Donald Trump hasn’t confirmed that he’ll run again for President in 2024, it seems there might be a strong possibility.

His millions of followers are definitely hoping he’ll run again, and many GOP leaders still believe Trump is the leader of the Republican Party.

And now, he might’ve just tapped a running mate.

Right-wing voters have floated several possibilities in recent months; for example, South Dakota Governor Kirsti Noem is a potential frontrunner.

But right now, there’s a Conservative leader in the south that’s getting a lot of attention.

And that’s exactly the person Donald Trump might want for his running mate, provided her really does go after the White House again.

Via New York Post:

Former President Donald Trump revealed Monday he would consider ditching Mike Pence for Florida’s tough Gov. Ron DeSantis as his 2024 presidential election running mate.

‘Sure I would … I would certainly consider Ron,’ Trump, 74, told Fox Business‘ Stuart Varney in a phone interview Monday.

Interestingly, Trump and DeSantis share a strong history.

Donald said he was “the first one to endorse him when came out as a congressman,” and he believes his endorsement “helped tremendously.”

And I know him very well. He’s a great guy,” Trump continued.

Of course, former Vice President Mike Pence still has plenty of fans, though some argue his support has waned in 2021.

Recently, Pence confessed that he didn’t “see eye to eye” with Trump over the Jan. 6 incident, and that didn’t go over well with some Conservatives.

And of course, Trump hasn’t made any concrete announcements for 2024 just yet.

But Trump isn’t about to close the door on other candidates, primarily because there are lots of good Republicans out there:

And you don’t see that with the Democrats — they kept their states closed and locked down, and the schools are closed.

It’s just absolutely outrageous how they get away with it.

As for the possibility that Trump could run for the House or Senate in 2022, he laughed that off during the interview.

He called it “highly unlikely,” which many view as a mini-announcement: it’s the Presidency again, or nothing.

Key Takeaways:

  • Donald Trump floated a strong possibility for a running mate in 2024.
  • It’s Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has become one of the most beloved Republicans in the country.
  • Trump hasn’t confirmed his plans, but he did appear to dismiss the possibility of running for the House or Senate.
