Rumored VP Contender Kristi Noem Met With Trump At Mar-a-Lago: Report

South Dakota GOP Governor Kristi Noem, who is believed to be on the shortlist for vice president, had a meeting with former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago this week.

“A new Kaplan Strategies Wisconsin poll released on February 23 shows Noem is the preferred pick to be Trump’s running mate. Trump has reportedly been considering Noem and a list of others to be his running mate. According to that poll, Noem had the highest favorability rating, with 39 percent of voters saying they have a very or somewhat favorable view of her,” the Daily Caller reported.

Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis secured second place with 28% of the vote, surpassing Vivek Ramaswamy, a potential presidential contender in 2024. During the annual Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) summit, Noem and Ramaswamy each received the highest number of votes in their straw poll, both garnering 15%.

Last week, Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany revealed who she thinks her former boss will select as his running mate if he secures the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. During a segment on the “Outnumbered” program, McEnany and her fellow co-hosts expressed their belief that Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) is a leading contender.

“What I find fascinating from what we just watched is that was him showing, ‘I have chops to be your VP,’” McEnany said after the show played some clips of Scott answering voters’ questions and shaking hands. “Because, in addition to winning over independents, winning over suburban moms, the VP pick must be someone who is the most effective voice for Donald Trump as he is embattled in these court battles. He just proved he can handle that.”

Co-host Emily Compagno agreed.

“What I thought this illustrated so beautifully is that Donald Trump has surrounded himself not with facsimile robots but with independent thinkers that are committed to the ideals and values of conservatism and the Republican Party,” she began. “It just goes to show for me the brand versus party and the brand versus values that the GOP is constantly fighting against the Democrats about.

“And what I mean by that is, every time you put a surrogate for Biden up, they say the same, ‘Biden is great and everything is fine.’ It’s over-simplified, it’s over-generalized, it’s, honestly, it’s not thoughtful. They are facsimiles of each other because they have the brand down,” Compagno continued.
