Trump is Vetting This Potential Vice President Candidate... Mike Vance June 30, 2016 News There has long been many rumors as to who Trump is going to chose to run as his vice president. It's know that his list has been whittled down to just a few. It looks like Chris Christie is on his very short list. Per The Hill: The Donald Trump campaign is vetting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as a potential running mate for the presumptive Republican nominee, according to multiple reports. Those with knowledge of the process told The New York Times Thursday that Christie is among those being vetted as a possible vice presidential pick for Trump. And an unnamed source told CNN the governor has received the official paperwork for the vetting process. Christie backed Trump shortly after ending his own presidential campaign in February, and has since followed him on the campaign trail, defended him against his critics and been a primary adviser to the campaign. It has seemed obvious to many that this has been in the works for a while. Christie, like Trump, is a guy that draws reactions from everyone, whether they love him or hate him. Many suggest that he should choose someone that is more popular across the board and more respected by all.
