Trump Hints at Naming VP Pick Ahead Of GOP Convention

( Donald Trump said it is likely that he will announce his vice presidential running mate at the Republican National Convention in July. There have been many potential candidates that are supposedly being considered, including Republican governors, senators, and representatives. At the same time, Trump expressed his appreciation for Milwaukee, the city where the convention will take place, and for the voters in Wisconsin. He suggested that if he is able to win the state’s electoral votes in the election, he will probably win the presidency.

Recent swing state polls show Trump is behind in Wisconsin by two percentage points. Despite that, Trump is leading Biden in five other critical swing states that were won by President Biden in the 2020 election race. Political analysts have expressed concerns that the latest polls do not reflect well on Biden’s chance of winning the election in November. There has been speculation that the recent polls have prompted Biden to accept the debate invitation from Trump.

The first presidential debate will occur on CNN on June 27 and the second debate is September 10 on ABC. Kamala Harris has accepted the invitation to debate whoever Trump chooses as his running mate, but a date hasn’t yet been scheduled. Trump is reportedly considering North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Representative Byron Donalds to fill out the Republican presidential ticket. Senator Marco Rubio has also been floated as a potential candidate, but he says he has not been in discussion with Trump’s campaign regarding the position.

Former Ohio Governor John Kasich and Trump have both suggested that Biden may be replaced by another candidate after recent polls show Biden’s struggle to win voters in swing states.

A USA Today opinion column says Biden should step aside for the good of the country and listed a few potential candidates to replace Biden as the candidate at the top of the ticket in November. The potential candidates suggested include Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and Senator Amy Klobuchar. Meanwhile Trump and others have suggested it could be California Governor Gavin Newsom or Vice President Kamala Harris.
