I have no idea which way Trump is going to go. But, Newt would make a lot of conservatives ecstatic.
NewsMax reports in a sign of growing acceptance that Donald Trump is their likely presidential nominee, several Republicans said they would join him on the ticket, most prominently former House speaker Newt Gingrich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, The New York Times reports.Other Republicans who have said they would consider being Trump's running mate include Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin.“If a potential president says I need you, it would be very hard for a patriotic citizen to say no," Gingrich said. "People can criticize a nominee, but ultimately there are very few examples of people turning down the vice presidency."
