Trump Taps Surprising NEW Vice President Contender

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Senator Katie Britt (R-AL), a first-term member, is getting ready to deliver the Republican response to President Biden’s State of the Union speech on March 7. A strong speech would help Britt gain favor with Republicans, but some political observers speculate that it might even propel the freshman senator to the position of vice president on a potential Trump ticket.

“Senator Britt who is the new freshman senator from Alabama, and who some very smart people believe will be Trump’s vice presidential pick — she has her big audition night because she’s going to deliver the response to Biden,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said during a radio interview with WABC 770 AM-N.Y. on Sunday.

“It’ll be interesting to see if Britt rises to the occasion. If she does, it will be a major step up in her potentially being Trump’s vice presidential candidate,” he continued.

Halfway through her GOP primary against U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, Britt gained the backing of the former president. Last month, Britt paid it forward by declaring her support for the former president’s run for the presidency, referring to him as “the only candidate who can secure the border.”

Trump has consistently stoked rumors about his choice of running mate, even though it looks like he has virtually definitely won the Republican nomination for president. According to reports, the former president has shortlisted a number of candidates, including Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Vivek Ramaswamy, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

Britt’s name hasn’t been spoken up much, but former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has made suggestions that the Trump team will choose a female running mate. “My thinking is very structured that I believe President Trump will have a female as the vice president,” he said, adding that the America First movement needs to “make sure it ain’t Nikki Haley.”

According to recent polls, Trump is gaining ground among female voters after losing them in 2020.
