Republican Donald Trump is in his second year campaigning for President and will possibly face Democratic President Joe Biden in next year’s election. Biden is running with Vice President Kamala Harris as his running mate, but Trump still hasn’t identified who his Vice President will be. 

There have been many who could be picked such as South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee, Arizona’s Kari Lake, former Governor Nikki Haley, and others. 

One other possibility is Texas Governor Greg Abbott who some thought would run for president.

Abbott has political experience as he is in his third term as Governor. 

Just a week ago, according to The Hill Governor Abbott announced his support for Donald Trump as a presidential candidate as Trump was in Texas.

Governor Abbott has done a lot as governor battling the border issue, education, lowering taxes, and even making international trips as he recently visited Israel. 

Several others have mentioned Abbott as a possible Vice Presidential candidate.     

Asher Price a writer for Axios told the Texas Standard:

“He’s been in state politics here for a long time. He won reelection in 2022 by double digits. He’s conquered the governorship, and he might be looking for something new to do. Having that spot next to the president might be quite tempting for Greg Abbott.”

Then political science professor Randon Rottinghaus from the University of Houston said on Axios:  

"He's effective on the stump, even if he's not the most successful retail politician. He can deliver the lines and get out."

Donald Trump has several potential people he could choose as his running mate. 

Do you think Governor Abbott would be a good choice for Republican Vice President?
