Last week, a source within the Trump campaign leaked the fact that Newt Gingrich is on the short list to become Trump’s VP. Newt appeared on Fox News on Sunday and he dropped hints as powerful as hellfire missiles that he would accept the VP job under Donald Trump, saying:
“I don’t think it’s an automatic yes. I’d be hard-pressed not to say yes.”
Apparently, the only reservation Newt has is that he wants to be assured that he will have an actual job to do and not be a ceremonial crazy uncle like Joe Biden. I don’t think he has anything to fear. Donald Trump has a history of surrounding himself with capable people who have the ability to make decisions on their own. Newt is an idea man and that would be extremely useful for trump as well as the fact that he can more than hold his own in the VP debate. He has a wide range of knowledge and the ability to call on it when needed.
Cruzbots would have a tough time painting Newt as a RINO, but they will try nonetheless because facts don’t matter. Polls have shown that Georgia could be in play, however with Newt on the ticket, it no longer would be.
Other republicans would like Trump to name a woman such as Susana Martinez, governor of New Mexico, who has the dual appeal of being a woman and an Hispanic. John Kasich could guarantee Ohio.
