The United States presidential election 2024, is scheduled for Tuesday, November 5, 2024, and it will be the 60th quadrennial presidential election. It will be the first presidential election after electoral ballots are redistributed according to the 2020 census reapportionment. Incumbent president Joe Biden has asserted that he aspires to run for reelection to a second term, with Vice President Kamala Harris as his running mate. On the other hand, former President Donald Trump has not declared whether he will run for president again in 2024. However, he seems to have determined that Mike Pence will not be his running mate in the coming presidential election.
Who Might Trump Pick for his 2024 Running mate?
When questioned about making Pence his vice president running mate 2024 in an interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump said, “I do not believe the people would approve it.” He further said that he and Mike had a great connection, except for the very critical circumstance that took place at the end. Trump has not spoken to him in a long time.
He said that should not surprise anyone who has been focusing on politics over the past 18 months. It seems Trump has never pardoned Pence for declining to overturn the election results during the counting of Electoral College votes on January 6, 2021.
The question that arises here is who Trump might select as his vice presidential nominee? There is a serious indication of Trump running for president again, and there are fewer chances that he would face any significant competition for the nomination.
While vice presidential candidates are always runner-up for the party’s nod, Trump does not seem to be a person to forget and pardon. That means if any vice -presidential nominee challenges Trump for the GOP nomination in two years, it is more likely they are out of the Vice President list.
Who might Trump pick?
Let’s take a look through a few of the most noticeable choices.
The American attorney and politician acting as the 46th governor of Florida since 2019. He represented Florida’s 6th district in the United States house of representatives before he assumed his office as governor . The Florida governor is the largely liked of the politicians not named ” Trump” in the party.This is equal to the dream ticket for several MAGA (Make America Great America ) nationalists. He hails from a large swing state. However, DeSantis has not been as inclined to grovel at the nominee of a 2024 Trump candidacy as some other ambitious Republicans have.
Nikki Haley is an American politician and the 116th as well as first female governor of South Carolina from 2011- 2017. She also served as the 29th United States diplomat to the United Nations from January 2017 to January 2019.
Haley served as the United Nations diplomat during the first part of Trump’s White House term. She is among the few people who left the last council on good terms with Trump. Thereafter their relationship has had ups and downs. If she gets picked up for the VP nomination by Trump, she would be a unique sort of candidate as an Indian American woman than what Republicans have been appointing in recent elections.
Tim Scott is a businessman and an American politician who has acted as the junior United States senator for South Carolina since 2013. As a republican, he was nominated to the U.S. Senate by Governor Nikki Haley in 2013.Though the South Carolina senator has sometimes criticized Trump, he has remained in the former President’s optimistic graces. Scott has said he would support Trump if the former President ran for reelection in 2024. If Scott gets nominated as the vice-presidential nominee in 2024, he would be a history-making choice as the first Black nominee on a federal Republican ticket.
Glenn Youngkin is an American politician and businessman acting as the 74th governor of Virginia since 15 January 2022. As a Republican, he defeated former Democratic Party governor Terry McAuliffe in the 2021 Virginia gubernatorial election.
It has been a few months since Youngkin has been the governor of Virginia. But he proved that there is a way to string the needle between the party’s Pro-Trump base in the 2021 campaign and the suburban voters who are put off by the former President’s bombast. Youngkin found an issue of what role the parents and education should play in it, that could adequately provide Republicans with the majority in the House and Senate.
Cruz is an American diplomat acting as the junior United States senator for Texas since 2013. As a member of the Republican party, he also served as solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to 2008.
Cruz ran for president of the U.S. in 2016 and stood second after Donald Trump in the Republican primaries. Cruz previously refused to support Trump’s campaign after he won the nomination but endorsed Trump during his presidency.
