Speculation is mounting as former President Donald Trump approaches a major announcement regarding his running mate for the upcoming presidential election.

In a recent appearance on "Meet The Press," Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, who has previously contended for the GOP’s presidential nomination, indicated that Trump’s announcement of his vice presidential choice is expected around early July.

This timeline would align with the start of the Republican National Convention, scheduled for July 15 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Donald Trump suggested in an interview with a local Fox station in Wisconsin that he would make his vice presidential choice "closer to Wisconsin time." During the Republican National Committee's spring retreat, several prominent Republicans were spotlighted as possible running mates.

These included Rep. Elise Stefanik, Sen. Marco Rubio, Rep. Byron Donalds, Sen. JD Vance, Gov. Doug Burgum, and Senator Tim Scott, indicating high anticipation and speculation about Trump’s selection.

Uncertainties and Expectations

Despite these discussions, Senator Scott mentioned that the vice presidential pick did not come up during a recent GOP donor retreat in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he and Trump were both present.

Senator Tim Scott’s comments add to the unfolding narrative as the political landscape gears up for the next presidential race. He refrained from committing to accept the results of the 2024 election, regardless of the outcome, during his media appearance.

The potential vice presidential candidates appeared alongside Trump during various GOP events, signaling their pivotal roles in the party’s future. As the convention date draws near, anticipation within the party and among its supporters continues to build, marking a critical phase in the pre-election activities.


As the Republican National Convention approaches, all eyes are on former President Donald Trump and his forthcoming announcement of a running mate, expected in early July. This decision is crucial as it will significantly influence the party's strategy and cohesion leading into the 2024 presidential election.
