New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez
Landing the popular and telegenic governor of New Mexico would be a coup for Trump.
Ohio Governor John Kasich
Kasich is trail-tested and, as the popular governor of a critical swing state, must be included on any vice presidential short-list.
Retired Neurosurgeon Ben Carson
Trump told The New York Times on Wednesday that Carson will play an important role in the VP search. That would seem to take him off the board, although Dick Cheney had the same charge for President George W. Bush in 2000 and ended up finding himself.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio
It’s hard to envision a Trump-Rubio ticket after the two spent weeks hurling personal insults at one another before Trump finally triumphed over “Little Marco.”
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
Christie doesn’t bring a swing state with him, and as the primary showed, he has a large national profile but not much of a base.
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich
Trump said Wednesday he’s looking for a candidate with “great political experience” who speaks the language of Washington and will help him with outreach to lawmakers.
Florida Governor Rick Scott
Trump has said he’s considering Scott as a vice presidential candidate.
General James Mattis
Mattis, a legendary, straight-talking four-star retired Marine Corps general whose nicknames include “Warrior Monk” and “Mad Dog,” might be right up Trump’s alley.
Tennessee Representative Marsha Blackburn
The outspoken Tennessee Republican is a veteran legislator with more than a decade of experience on Capitol Hill.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
The fast-rising GOP star is a young, telegenic, charismatic Indian-American and one of the most popular governors in the country.
The most interesting name on this list that the Hill posted is General James Mattis. From all the articles I have read this is the first time I saw his name mentioned as a Vice Presidential candidate. I have seen his name come up in the past for a potential independent run for President. However recently he has said he would not run as an independent for President. As far as I know I do not believe he has made any public comments about Donald Trump.
