The Washington Post is reporting that Former House Speaker, and failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, is Donald Trump’s top choice for a running mate.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, another failed presidential candidate, is a close second, according to the Post.
Gingrich, has the support of advisors like former GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson, who is one of Trump’s closest confidants. In an interview with Dennis Michael Lynch, Dr. Carson hinted towards Gingrich by stating, “Donald Trump won’t pick someone political who can bring a certain state or demographic –he’s past that.”
Other names on the list include Republican Sens. Jeff Sessions (Ala.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.), Sens. Richard Burr (N.C.), Tom Cotton (Ark.), John Thune (S.D.) and Joni Ernst (Iowa), and Govs. Mike Pence (Ind.) and Mary Fallin (Okla.).
