Washington, April 12: Republican front-runner Dold Trump has med Ohio Governor John Kasich and Florida Setor Marco Rubio as potential running mates in the race to November’s presidential elections. “Yes. I like Marco Rubio. Yeah. I could,” Trump said, referring to spots in his administration, in the interview with USA TODAY published on Monday. “There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody mes ... I do like Marco. I do like Kasich ... I like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard ... But I’ve always liked him. There are people I like, but I don’t think they like me because I have hit them hard.”
Of the three, Kasich is the only one still running, but he has no mathematical path to the nomition before the convention, Time magazine reported on Tuesday. Trump had previously said he would like to select a Washington insider for vice president.
“I do want somebody that’s political, because I want to get lots of great legislation we all want passed,” Trump said in February. “We’re going to probably choose somebody that’s somewhat political.”
Walker said he laughed when he read Trump’s comments but would not rule out being Trump’s vice presidential pick when asked about it on Monday, the Wisconsin State-Jourl reported.
“It’s kind of interesting to hear that after the things that were said about me a couple weeks ago,” Walker said, adding “It’s almost breathtaking that I was listed in the first place.” (IANS)
