Rubio, Walker or Kasich are on the list of Trump’s possible VP’s

Yeah, I know this is going to shock you like you did me but some of it might make sense.

GOP front-runner Donald Trump today announced three names of possible vice presidential picks and they are probably shocked that he called them. Trump named Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Scott Walker, and Gov. John Kasich when asked who would he most likely choose as a VP.

Most will be surprised by Rubio as they fought tooth and nail but like I said before it makes sense. He always did like Rubio and until he end, they had never crossed paths. Rubio also holds a Latino flavor that would be popular during the election season. Walker was my original choice for President, but he bolted too early in my opinion. Walker beat the unions three times and was considered a top choice to sit in the main seat.

I don’t understand the Kasich choice except for he won Ohio, and no Republican has sat in the White House without Ohio under his belt.


From The Hill:

“There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names,” Trump told USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers for a story published Monday afternoon.

“I do like Marco. I do like Kasich. … I like 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,” Trump said.

Trump has feuded with all three men — each of whom has, to varying degrees, brushed off talk of supporting the controversial businessman if he secured the GOP nomination.

Rubio ended his White House bid in mid-March after losing the Florida primary to Trump.

Walker, who dropped out of the GOP race last year, endorsed Ted Cruz last month and said Monday he couldn’t “fathom” being Trump’s running mate, calling it nearly “breathtaking,” according to The Associated Press.

What do you think about those choices? They have to shake up a lot of people that have been going hard against the GOP front-runner. Trump is calculating and very smart to have at least two of those three as solid choices.
