REPORT: Trump’s VP Shortlist Narrows, Longtime Contender Is ‘Not A Stand-Out Or Gamechanger’ – EVOL

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who has long been viewed as a top contender to be former President Donald Trump’s running mate, is slipping in the VP sweepstakes and is no longer seen as a leading candidate, according to a report from the New York Post.

Scott, 58, immediately endorsed former President Trump after suspending his presidential campaign before Iowa last year. He fiercely campaigned for Trump on the campaign trail, particularly in his home state of South Carolina, where the former president cruised to victory over former Palmetto State Governor Nikki Haley.

According to recent reporting, Trump has narrowed his VP shortlist down to a few names, Scott being one of them. Additional candidates include Senator JD Vance (R-OH), Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, among others. Names on the shortlist are in the process of being vetted before Trump makes a decision, which is expected to come during or before next month’s Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.

Sources familiar with the situation told the New York Post that Senator Scott is not expected to be Trump’s running mate, however.
