RFK Jr says that Trump “emissaries” asked him to be VP and he declined

Trump texts Tim Scott every week. He wants to make sneakercon an ongoing event. Obvious pick. He ain't doing sneakercon with a woman.

Assuming the $50 million haul is legit, Haley and Rubio whose biggest value prop is fundraising decline a lot

It will be Rubio or Stefanik. All the other options have glaring issues. And I’m absolutely positive that it won’t be Scott. Going to start putting real money down for Rubio.

What about Kennedy??

@OmarB lucrative if true

@shankypanky Ah Thanks! 💰

@OmarB Woah slow down, my friend! Leave some shares for the rest of us!

@Joshua RFK Jr is the smart choice, I cannot be too hopeful

bought Ṁ5,000 Tim Scott (SC Senator ) NO

just got a call from a friend... says Scott's off the menu...

@jim Was he ever on it?

New reporting today from Politico on Trump's VP Hunt!

Some highlights:

While who is up or down seemingly changes by the minute, the list has included everyone from Tim Scott and Kristi Noem to Byron Donalds, Elise Stefanik, Tulsi Gabbard and J.D. Vance, whom Trump has called a “fighter.”

The names under consideration continue to be in flux, according to multiple people familiar with the list, who describe it as being in “pencil, not pen.” But it includes Sens. Scott of South Carolina, Vance of Ohio, Katie Britt of Alabama and Marco Rubio of Florida, as well as Govs. Noem of South Dakota, Sarah Huckabee Sanders of Arkansas and Doug Burgum of North Dakota. Donalds, the Florida representative, and Gabbard, the former Hawaii representative, among others, are also being considered or have been floated by Trump.

During one private meeting several weeks ago in Palm Beach, Florida, he went down the list of possible running mates with visitors, including one member of Congress, offering commentary on each. He spoke highly of Stefanik and Gabbard, according to a person with knowledge of the conversation and granted anonymity to speak freely. And he was dismissive of Scott, suggesting the senator may not be up to the job of being president, if needed.

Still, in a sign of his vacillation, Trump spoke positively about Scott as recently as last week, according to a person familiar with a private conversation with the former president. A spokesperson for Scott declined to comment.

The former football coach said all the name-floating felt familiar: “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.” Tuberville echoed Trump’s own advisers, who have expressed annoyance at some of the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of consultants.

As he searches for a running mate this year, those under consideration are finding ways to be helpful with the campaign. Scott, for example, talks with Trump by call or text message nearly weekly, according to a person with knowledge of their relationship and granted anonymity to speak freely. The senator is also highly involved as a Trump campaign surrogate on TV.

One Republican strategist close to Trump’s campaign said each candidate comes with their own set of baggage: “There’s no one that checks every single box that they’re looking for.” Britt, for one, had a widely panned State of the Union rebuttal, Noem just made a strange advertisement for veneers, and several hopefuls have come across to Trump as too eager, according to two people close to Trump.

Marco Rubio

The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves

@MickBransfield Easy - all he has to do is change his residency to DC. To be a senator, he only needs to be an in state resident when elected.

@MickBransfield Cheney changed residency to run with Bush

@SemioticRivalry @FoxKHTML Both of you are correct. I was thinking that if he does change residency and not win, his 2028 re-election would be difficult. But at that point, he'd probably run for President, again.

@MickBransfield Not really. He could always change it back before re-election. Residency requirements are totally toothless.

@FoxKHTML I was thinking of the optics. Like Mary Landrieu claiming DC residency did not endear her to Louisiana voters in 2014.

@MickBransfield Everyone would understand. Plus, Rubio won re-election by 20 points. He’ll be fine.

bought Ṁ1 Vivek Ramaswamy (Ent... YES

Why is Vivek only 2%? That seems low to me.

@Pazzaz ...and because apart from tiktok followers, who dont vote anyways, he offers Trump exactly nothing he cant get from a more qualified/established person. Supporting Vivek has been like a litmus test for whether to take anything else a Republican says seriously.

Rubio is easily the most likable pick

@FoxKHTML Sadly he is too little for the role

@FoxKHTML that's why he's got no chance
