The presidential primary season is over, and now that former President Donald Trump has won the Republican nomination, he is being asked questions about who is on his vice presidential shortlist.

In February, while the primaries were still underway, Trump told Fox News`s Maria Bartiromo that he did not intend to announce his pick for a while.

Sources close to Trump`s campaign said they advised Trump not to announce his nomination until the convention to create suspense and increase his influence over the candidates vying for the job.

Sources told CBS News that Trump is considering Stefanik as a potential vice presidential candidate. When asked if she would serve as vice president, Stefanik told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that she would be honored to serve in any capacity in the Trump administration.

North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum – another former 2024 presidential candidate – has also been discussed by the Trump campaign as a potential vice presidential candidate.

Carson, who ran against Trump in the 2016 presidential primary, campaigned for the former president in Iowa before the caucuses. Carson is considered a safe choice for vice president because he is popular with conservatives and Christians.

Responding to a question about whether he and Trump had any discussions about becoming vice president, Carson said: I don’t want to talk about private conversations.

Rubio endorsed Trump the day before the Iowa caucuses in an article on March 21. In an interview with Glenn Beck, Rubio said he had not spoken to Trump or his campaign about running for vice president.

“The reason why I work in public office and the reason why I ran for office, which is a six-year contract that you sign when you come here, is because I always wanted to save this country,” Rubio said.
