Yesterday Governor Mike Pence of Indiana met with the likely GOP nominee, but for Governor Pence there's an additional twist. He must declare by the 15rh if he is running for reelection back home. He can't run for both.
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)Senator Ernst is a retired colonel with Gulf War combat experience. Her current term has four years left so a VP run has little impact on her political career and at 46 offers a fresh face. Given her career it would be more difficult for the Dems and their media acolytes to portray her as a bimbo blonde.
Pence quiets down some conservatives but Ernst is a better chance to shake things up.
Of course there are still the Newt rumors but yesterday he said Mr. Trump has to stop screwing up and that may not sit well in Trump land.
