‘We’ll See’: Did This Republican Just Drop A Big Hint About Trump’s Running Mate Choice?


There’s been plenty of speculation regarding which of several prominent candidates Donald Trump will select as his running mate ahead of the November election.

The issue has gained even more attention in light of news about a forthcoming debate involving Vice President Kamala Harris and Trump’s pick.

During a recent Newsmax interview, one of the contenders seemed to drop a hint that he could be the one taking on Harris in that debate.

As the New York Post reported:

Sen. Tim Scott has given the strongest indication yet he’s a top contender to be former President Donald Trump’s running mate, suggesting Wednesday he’ll be part of a potential vice presidential debate to be held this summer.

“I hear there’s a debate in July,” Scott (R-SC) told Newsmax host Eric Bolling. “If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you. We’ll see what happens.”

Bolling then asked Scott point-blank if he will be Trump’s No. 2.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” a laughing Scott replied.

Scott has long been a favorite to secure the position as Trump has showered him with praise since he suspended his own White House bid.

But another former GOP presidential candidate who is now described as a possible Trump VP pick says there are still a lot of names on the list.

As Newsweek reported about North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum:

“I dismiss sort of all of that. Because just a week ago at Mar-a-Lago, when someone asked him, during his remarks, he said that there was over 50 people on the shortlist. So the shortlist could be very long,” Burgum said. “And I think everybody who cares about this country should be out helping the campaign for President Trump and that’s what the first lady and I are doing.”

New York Representative Elise Stefanik and Florida Senator Marco Rubio are also among the names who have long been considered potential picks to be named Trump’s next Republican vice president hopeful.

Earlier this year, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer predicted Scott would be Trump’s running mate:
