‘It’s All Propaganda’: GOP Senator Says Trump’s VP Pick Will Be a Surprise

Do not expect any of the names floating around in regard to former President Donald Trump’s search for a running mate to make the final cut, according to a GOP senator.

Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) spoke to POLITICO about Trump’s search for a vice president to serve in a second term, which has drawn a great deal of speculation in the run-up to the November election after two campaigns with Mike Pence as his running mate.

“He’ll ask you about people,” Tuberville said, adding, “All I can tell you is, if you’re hearing any names, it ain’t going to be them. It’s all propaganda.”

Among those said to be in consideration include Sens. Tim Scott (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Katie Britt (R-AL), and J.D. Vance (R-OH); South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem; and Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and Byron Donalds (R-FL).

The report also noted Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who served as Trump’s White House press secretary, and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, who ran against Trump in the primary this cycle, are under consideration.

Last month, the New York Post reported that Trump ruled out former GOP rival Vivek Ramaswamy for VP, but would consider him for a Cabinet post. Donald Trump Jr., the former president’s eldest son, told the outlet he’s pushing for a “fighter” like journalist Tucker Carlson, Vance, or Ramaswamy.

Trump himself has floated possibilities, including Scott and Noem, while stressing there are “a lot of good people” he could choose from.

Sources told POLITICO that Susan Wiles, an adviser to former President Trump, is working on devising a short list of VP contenders. One insider even suggested Trump may “draw this out ‘Apprentice’-syle,” a reference to his old reality TV show on NBC.

Tuberville hearkened back to his experience as a college football coach in dismissing all the buzz in the VP hunt.

“Like football coaches whenever there’s a job opening, my agent always put my name in there to get me a raise, get me publicity and all that,” he said.

President Joe Biden, like Trump, has secured enough delegates to clinch his party’s nomination. He is sticking with Vice President Kamala Harris.

Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently announced Nicole Shanahan, the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, would be his running mate.
