The highly awaited announcement is coming soon…

According to a report from The New York Post, Donald Trump is now seriously considering two candidates to become his running mate.

Barring a last-minute surprise, the sources say, the 67-year-old Burgum and the 39-year-old Vance are the clear front-runners for the GOP’s VP slot, with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) still having an outside shot.

Other rumored options, such as Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, were dismissed as having little chance of being picked — with one source going so far as to say there was “no way” Trump, 78, would tap Carson.

The New York Post has more:

“It would honestly make no sense,” one source said.

One source close to Trump gave a slight edge to Burgum being the 45th president’s running mate, saying the North Dakotan had a 50-50 chance of being selected and Vance had a 30% chance, with Rubio and the field each having a 10% percent chance.

A different source close to the Trump campaign said the choice was “gonna be JD, Marco or Burgum” and that they didn’t “see a scenario where one of those three doesn’t end up getting it.”

“I would give Burgum and JD a little more of an edge than Marco,” the source added, handicapping that “Marco still has a shot” and that “Burgum and JD have an equal shot.”

“JD because that’s who Don Jr. and Trump’s inner orbit seem to be pushing for,” this person said. “Donors [are] pushing Burgum for stability.”

However, Rubio is reportedly scheduled to be at Trump’s Doral, Fla., rally on Tuesday night and changed his schedule at the last minute to ensure he would make it.

Trump is having another rally in western Pennsylvania on Saturday, potentially giving him a prime opportunity to announce Vance, who reps neighboring Ohio, as his choice.


  1. Either of those two is a good choice for VP … still hope that after the running mate is selected, 11/5 comes, and the dust settles, PRESIDENT TRUMP carves out a spot in his Administration to use the talents of Tulsi Gabbard — she is THE young political superstar, and to have her in the fold is another step forward. It’ll be SO GOOD to say goodbye to the confused, feeble biden; the phony, greedy “dr” jill; KJP; and all the democrap apologists who keep telling us how great THEIR GUY is. Oh, and don’t forget the outstanding “kammie”, whose mouth is about to be shut. ( TIP: by all means, be sure to watch Ben Shapiro’s outstanding 3-parter on the rise and demise of “scamala harris” on you tube — it’s a riot ! )
