Trump Running Mate Favorite Kristi Noem Hints at Future VP Role

South Dakota’s Republican Governor Kristi Noem has dropped hints that she is ready to run on the ticket for the 2024 election with President Donald Trump.

Noem, who has been named as a favorite for Trump’s running mate, expressed confidence that she could aid the 45th president in securing victory in the presidential election this November if given the opportunity.

When asked if she believed she could help Trump defeat Democrat President Joe Biden in the 2024 race as his running mate, she promptly replied, “Oh, I know I could.”

After her speech on Friday at the American Conservative Union’s 2024 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Noem gave an interview with the Washington Examiner.

Noem pointed to her “experience running businesses, serving as governor, representing in Congress, but above all, being a mom” as her qualifications.

Noem elaborated, stating that being a mother means “I have the ability to wake up every day and think about what kind of country I am leaving for my kids,” adding that she also has “two grandbabies.”

“All of that brings a different perspective that I believe not many people can offer,” she said. “But time will tell.”

Conversely, Noem asserted that Trump needs someone “tough” who can provide him with “strength” during challenging moments in the campaign.

While acknowledging that Trump has not approached her for the role, she emphasized, “And we’ve never had that conversation.”

She noted that “he has some good options” and reiterated her commitment to “doing everything” to ensure his victory in November.

Speaking at CPAC, Noem reminded the audience that she endorsed Trump early in the primary process.

“Last year, when everyone was asking me if I would consider running for president, I said no,” she recounted.

“Why run for president if you can’t win?”

During a recent town hall on Fox News, Trump confirmed that Noem was on his shortlist for a running mate.

Noem was named alongside Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), and former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).

These names were proposed by host Laura Ingraham, with Trump affirming that each was under consideration.

“They are,” he disclosed.

“Honestly, all of those people are good. They’re all solid.”

Trump is increasingly expected to secure the Republican nomination for president, likely facing off against Biden, who faces minimal opposition for the Democratic nomination.

He holds a significant double-digit lead over one of the few remaining GOP contenders.

On Saturday, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was crushed by Trump in her home state.
