Trump Selects New VP?

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) has endorsed North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum as the optimal choice for former President Trump’s running mate. Burgum has emerged as a leading contender for the vice-presidential slot, frequently advocating for Trump in media appearances and on the campaign trail. In an interview with KFYR, Sen. Cramer expressed his belief that Burgum would be a stronger candidate than his senatorial colleagues.

“The other three frequently mentioned are all Senators and colleagues of mine. I hold them in high regard and believe any of them would be suitable. However, I think Doug Burgum would be the best choice. This sentiment is increasingly shared by many observers, including the president himself,” Cramer stated.

This discussion followed an NBC News report that identified Burgum, along with Sens. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), as the top candidates for Trump’s vice-presidential pick.

Cramer noted that Burgum has consistently aligned with Trump’s views and actions, reinforcing his suitability for the role. “There’s never been anything Doug has done or said, or anything said about him, that has dissuaded Donald Trump in any way,” he remarked.

While Trump has indicated he has made a decision on his running mate, the announcement is expected to come at the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) convention next month. Other Republicans under consideration include Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), and former HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

In a recent appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Burgum declined to confirm whether he had discussed the vice-presidential role with Trump, but he did express confidence in Trump’s potential for success regardless of his running mate. “That decision is up to President Trump, and that’s where the conversation should remain,” Burgum said.
