Fresh off his historic victory in the Iowa caucuses on Monday, former President Donald Trump is reportedly honing in on who he will ask to become his running mate.
The Calvin Coolidge Project noted on its X account that the leading GOP presidential contender is “seriously considering” House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) as his choice.
Meanwhile, CBS News reported that Stefanik will be campaigning with Trump ahead of next week’s New Hampshire primaries, in which he currently leads by most polls, though GOP competitor Nikki Haley, his former UN ambassador, appears to be closing the gap in some surveys.
“This is the first time Stefanik – who is also the House GOP chairwoman – will join Trump as he tries to win the New Hampshire primary,” the outlet reported. “Stefanik was among the first members of Congress to endorse Trump in the presidential primary season in November 2022, when he announced his third bid for the White House. She’s viewed as a loyal ally to Trump, according to sources.”
