Trump Just Hinted At His Potential Vice President Pick – Some Conservatives Will Be LIVID
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stirred the waters Saturday by suggesting that former Sen. Scott Brown would make a “very good” vice president.
Brown was the GOP’s choice to fill the U.S. Senate seat for Massachusetts that opened with the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy in 2009. He won a special election in 2010 but then lost to Elizabeth Warren in 2012. Brown moved to New Hampshire where in 2014 he challenged Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen but lost in a close election.
Talk of the vice presidential spot began when, during a Portsmouth, New Hampshire., rally Brown was hosting, Trump asked Brown whether he would run again for office.
A member of the audience proposed a Trump-Brown ticket for the GOP in 2016.
“Vice president – hey, that sounds like it could, hey, hey, very good,” Trump responded.
“Hey, you know what? And he’s central casting. Look at that guy. Central casting,” he added. “He’s great. Great guy and a great, beautiful, great wife and family. So important.”
