There hasn’t been a lot of talk about who Donald Trump, the current GOP frontrunner, might pick as his running mate, should he continue to the nomination after shockingly leading the field for roughly seven months.
But Donald Trump tipped his hand at a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Saturday, saying he would consider picking two-time loser and former Senator Scott Brown as his running mate.
Brown, who replaced retiring liberal Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy, was elected to the U.S. Senate during the Tea Party wave of 2010, but was then defeated first by leftist Elizabeth Warren in 2012, and again by very vulnerable Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen after moving to New Hampshire in 2014.
Brown turned out to be an establishment RINO squish and was a huge disappointment to the very Tea Party folks who elected him.
The Hill reported:
Speaking to a crowd at a Portsmouth, N.H., rally hosted by Scott Brown on Saturday, Donald Trump said the former senator would make a “very good” vice president.After Trump asked Brown whether he would consider running for public office again, a member of the audience floated the idea of a Trump-Brown ticket in 2016.
“Vice president – hey, that sounds like it could, hey, hey, very good,” Trump responded.“Hey, you know what? And he’s central casting. Look at that guy. Central casting,” he added. “He’s great. Great guy and a great, beautiful, great wife and family. So important.”
