VP Hopefuls Looking for Their ‘Golden Ticket’

For months now, there has been much speculation about whom Donald Trump will anoint as his vice president.

There is a significant list of top candidates, and now all of them are making their final attempts at landing that cherished spot on the GOP presidential ticket.

Many believe that whoever Trump picks will be the clear front-runner for the 2028 election.

The Golden Ticket

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was a late entry into this race after dropping hints in the media that he would be honored to serve if Trump were to pick him, and now we know why.

This is all about Little Marco getting a step up on the field for the 2028 race.

Alex Conant, who worked on Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.) 2016 presidential campaign, stated, “To the extent that whoever he picks as vice president could be the presumptive front-runner four years from now, it’s a bigger deal than normal.”

Conant added, “We’re seeing a lot of younger Republicans clamoring for the role because they see this as not only being as vice president but as positioning for 2028.”

Governor Kristi Noem has been touting Trump every chance she gets, once considered the lock to be Trump’s VP, but now she is seeing heavy competition from Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who is my preferred pick.

Senator JD Vance (R-OH) has also been working Trump through the media, promising to help Trump “however I can.”

Most of those close to Trump and the situation in general believe that Trump is not necessarily looking for votes in a VP choice, but loyalty.

The friction between Trump and Mike Pence is well documented, so I don’t need to rehash that, but note that Pence was extremely loyal to Trump right up until Trump asked him to overstep his authority in blocking the election certification.

For my money, as noted above, this should be an easy choice for Trump in picking Scott as his VP.

Scott has flipped the narrative on being VP and made it clear he would love to be Trump’s VP. This would be a serious threat to the 2028 nomination.

Above that, Scott would dramatically help Trump in terms of support in minority communities, where Trump and Republicans have made significant headway over the last eight years.

And make no mistake about it, Trump will need those votes because there is definitely a significant contingent of DeSantis supporters that Trump lost with his attacks against DeSantis during the campaign.

For me, anything other than Scott is a monumental mistake on the part of Trump.
