A noted U.S. senator appeared to suggest during a Newsmax TV interview on Friday that former President Donald Trump has selected him as his vice presidential running mate, though he would not say for sure when pressed by the host.

“Senator, I would love to moderate a debate with you, but I have a hunch that there might be a vice presidential debate,” said host Eric Bolling. “Maybe Kamala Harris will be debating Senator Tim Scott on that one, and I would be honored to moderate that one.”

“If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you,” Scott said in response. “We’ll see what happens… but we need a new president. And that’s Donald Trump.” “And a new vice president, and is it you?” Bolling followed up. “We’ll have to wait and see,” replied Scott, who ran for the 2024 GOP nomination but then readily endorsed Trump after he dropped out.

Ohio Republican Sen. J.D. Vance gave a head-turning response last month in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on the subject of potentially becoming Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate and possible vice president.

“Well, Laura, I have actually never spoken to the president about V.P. Speculation. My simple answer is I want to help him however I can. If he asks me, of course I would think seriously about it. It would be a great honor,” Vance began.

“I also am happy to support the agenda in the United States Senate, and regardless, Laura, you have to remember my job is to serve the people of Ohio. Whether it’s supporting Trump’s agenda in the Senate or serving in some other role, we have got to bring good manufacturing jobs and prosperity to the people of Ohio and the American heartland,” he continued.

“For 40 years bipartisan consensus to ship jobs overseas to bring unchecked migration. Trump stopped that. And the real question for the Republican party is whether we follow that lead and double down on that winning agenda or do we try to go back to the old ways and, unfortunately, Laura, as you know as well as I do, there is a critical component of the old guard of the Republican party that wants to go back to the old ways, more immigration, more war, less good wages for American workers,” Vance said. He added: “Thank god Trump is there to push back against it.”
