Donald Trump said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is “absolutely” on his short list for vice president as he closes in on his finalists for the No. 2 spot, AJC.COM reports.
“Newt is such a great guy. He’s been such a great supporter. He’s a tremendous guy,” Trump told Fox & Friends on Friday. “Absolutely. I’ll say yes because he’s been such a supporter.”
The short list might be pretty long, though. When pressed on other names he’s considering – Florida Gov. Rick Scott and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are among the other names he’s identified – Trump told Fox that “anybody who supports me is on the short list.”
