2024 Election

Which of These Four Would Make the Best VP for Trump?



The race to determine who will be Donald Trump’s running mate this November is continuing to heat up, with the former president telling Fox News last week he has “sort of a pretty good idea” who he’ll select. The identity of that person remains a mystery, but a number of prospective contenders were recently asked to provide documents to Trump’s team as part of the vetting process, including firebrand Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance, who some insiders say could be the key to flipping working-class Democrat voters in a number of consequential battleground states.

J.D. Vance, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Sanders, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum are the leading names being considered. Vance, a frequent presence on the campaign trail with Trump, has strong appeal among blue-collar voters, particularly in Rust Belt states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Rubio and Sanders bring extensive political experience and established profiles, while Burgum’s successful governance and business acumen make him a strong contender.


These states, crucial in the 2016 and 2020 elections, could again decide the presidency. Vance’s blue-collar background, highlighted in his memoir “Hillbilly Elegy,” resonates with many voters. Sanders’ leadership in Arkansas, Rubio’s experience in the Senate, and Burgum’s innovative governance style all present compelling cases. As the anticipation builds, the selection of Trump’s VP candidate remains a pivotal decision that could shape the upcoming election.
