Kari Lake visits Mar-a-Lago – Who will be Trump’s VP pick?
The Arizona governor’s race could very well be subject to a recount, so the results may not be known for some time. But whether she wins or loses, if Democrats think Kari Lake is walking away quietly, chances are they’re sadly wrong.
On Thursday, Lake traveled to Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate of former President Donald Trump. She was there to attend an organized event by the America First Policy Institute, a think tank formed by several former members of the Trump administration.
Lake had previously said of Trump’s presidential announcement, “[Trump has] my complete and total approval!”
With this announcement, Donald Trump will finally be looking for a running mate. The question is… who will it be?

Kari Lake is a political newcomer, but what a sensation she made. Lake spent 20 years as a news anchor in Phoenix before stepping down and running for governor. Democrats, without thinking, usually telegraph who they’re afraid of, and they’re really scared of Lake Kari.

Lake makes no sense and calls BS when she sees him, much like Donald Trump. Although she (probably) won’t make her own run, the GOP will need Arizona in 2024.
And having spent much of her adult life in the media, she knows exactly who and what they are, and she constantly beats them at their own game. Kari Lake should definitely be a consideration.

Fresh from the Democratic Party and with an independent streak, Tulsi Gabbard should also be on Veep’s consideration list.
Gabbard and Kari Lake would go far with that elusive ‘suburban women’ vote, and Gabbard isn’t just an Iraq war veteran, she’s also an active reservist, great experience to have in politics. foreign.
Being so independent-minded might just be the thing to counterbalance Donald Trump. She might attract more independent thinkers to the GOP ticket, and those who might not be totally sold on another Trump presidency.

While most presidential candidates try not to pick someone from their own state as their running mate, many people think that Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis would be the GOP’s “Dream Team.”
Its own possible presidential aspirations aside, one look at Florida under the leadership of Ron DeSantis, and it’s easy to see why people are flocking to the Sunshine State for a living.
The 2022 midterms have seen Florida lead the tables with GOP candidates and appear to be as Republican as ever. The ever-crucial state of Florida would be in the bag when it comes to electoral votes with DeSantis as the VP nominee.
While we may have to go through some nasty primary fights between Trump and DeSantis if he decides to throw his hat in the ring in 2024, if he emerges victorious, Trump would be crazy not to consider Ron DeSantis for the ticket.

The junior senator from South Carolina has also been mentioned often when discussing the 2024 GOP nominees. As the Republican Party picks up more and more African American votes, Tim Scott on a GOP ticket would certainly make Democrats nervous to the idea of attracting black voters, their most trusted voting bloc.
Tim Scott would also be a great contrast to Donald Trump with his own life story of being raised in poverty by a single mother and nearly dropping out of high school before a mentor persuaded him to turn his life around.
Her story confirms that in America, no matter who you are, anything is possible. Scott would also be a great consideration.
Before 2024, many other well-qualified VP candidates could emerge. For Republicans, this is a very good problem to have.
