Donald Trump praised Sunday the idea of Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin serving as his running mate.
South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, a Trump supporter, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Fallin would be a great choice.
“I think you’re going to see something different. I think what he will do is he won’t go with the norm that you pick a battleground state and you pick somebody from that state or a rival candidate,” he said. “I think he’s going to say, ‘Who can help me get the job done?’ and I think he needs some balance, and I like Mary Fallin for that reason.”
Trump tweeted afterward “.@AndreBauer Great job and advice on @CNN @jaketapper Thank you!”
Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., said earlier in the show that a vice presidential pick would not likely come until after the Republican convention in mid-July. But he offered some ideas of who his father would be looking for.
“I think there are a lot of viable candidates out there, and I think some of them could have been people that have run against us in this. I think my father’s been clear that he wants someone that has navigated the D.C. waterways a little more than he has to be in there,” Trump told CNN’s Jake Tapper.
