South Dakota Governor Addresses Speculation She May Become Trump’s Running Mate

Could South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem become the next vice president? The Republican contender is keeping her plans a secret–for now.

The Hill reports:

“I think that there’s a lot of people out there who would like his running mate, I’m focused on getting reelected,” Noem told CNN “State of the Union” co-anchor Dana Bash.

“I don’t operate in that hypothetical, either,” Noem continued. “I would be shocked if he asked. And right now, I’m just so focused on South Dakota, we’re doing great things and we’ve got a lot more to do the next four years.”

“It is clear she is running for president or vice president,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said of Noem during an interview with Bash minutes later on Sunday. “She’s scared to death of the base.”

Rep. Kinzinger said that the South Dakota Governor is now “very different” than she was while serving alongside him in Congress.

“This is not the Kristi Noem I served with,” Kinzinger said. “Kristi whom I served with was conservative, dedicated the truth. I at the time would have thought [she] would have put her country above her political career at any moment.”

House Republican conference chair Elise Stefanik and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have also been floated as possible running mates for Trump.

Mayorkas is an example of the world elitists, who don’t want any government in the world to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people”, they want the common man to be subservient and subordinate to the self-proclaimed world elitists, themselves, and they will do anything to enslave everyone else to accomplish their goal of a one-world-government enslaving everyone under their chosen and appointed world elitists, like Mayorkas, Garland, and Wray, and all the others Biden chose to serve him, but not the USA and the American people.

Please tell me that he isn’t going to choose Noem to be his running mate! She showed her true colors when she vetoed the Bill against Biological Males competing in Women’s Sports! Just one more squishy rino!

She signed a revised bill in February. She was concerned the first version wouldn’t hold up in federal court against the inevitable attack by Merrick Garland of the U. S. Department of Justice Political Protection. The law she signed went into effect July 1, assuming it hasn’t already been blocked by some judge.

All the speculation about other candidates for President are just that, speculations. It has been Trump who has gone out on the limb and held the GOP together as a power to be reckoned with. It is his opportunity to finish the job of righting our country and Making it the world power that focuses on stability. Granted he only gets one more term, but plenty of time to groom his replacement. The main thing is we get our country back and keep draining the Swamp monster! I’m still voting for Donald J. Trump!

A woman VP would be good for the people who would vote for her just because she is a woman (not the best way to pick a candidate, but we need the votes). Trump has a bad track record of picking people who turn out to be Rino’s or worse. I would go with someone who is 100% solid conservative. Someone like MTG or someone who voted to pause vote in the 2020 fraud – those people stuck their neck out when it counted for what was right.

Donald Trump did well with his choice of Mike Pence for Vice President. Before you get all disgusted with that, just keep in mind that if he could have legally done anything to block votes from questionable Electors on 6 January 2020, Al Gore could have made himself President in 2021 by blocking the Electoral votes from Florida. The Twelfth Amendment does not give the President of the Senate the power to challenge electoral votes or certificates, and Mr. Pence was not going to go against the Constitution. Questioning electoral votes is for Congress to do. They failed to do so, and we’re stuck with Mr. Biden. Get over it, and concentrate on surviving until the next regular Presidential inauguration.

It is unfair to call Mr. Pence a RINO. He has been very consistent in his support of the Republican platform and principles. In the U. S. House of Representatives, he earned a lifetime rating of 99% from the American Conservative Union. The Republican average is 82% for 2021.

There are three typos in the article, and the author did not inform the reader who Noem was considering running with until the last word.

Me personally am sick to death of the loose morals of the demon-rat run administration. They only look to hire unqualified tokens. I want decency and common sense bought back to OUR HOUSE!

[“It is clear she is running for president or vice president,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said of Noem during an interview with Bash minutes later on Sunday.

Who in the world believes that Adam Kinzinger has even an ounce of credibility in anything that he may say? Look at the stupid choices that he has made, ending a once very promising political career, as some people even mention him as a possible future Presidential candidate.

Adam Kinzinger was apparently completely incapable of discerning the accomplishments of President Trump successfully completing all of the Republican promises for the USA and the American people, that Adam Kinzinger and all other Republican politicians promised, but were never capable of fulfilling any of their promises to their constituents, which President Trump did for them, and Adam Kinzinger turned to join the Democrats’ hegemony toward President Trump, and keeps digging his disloyalty hole even deeper.

“STUPID is, as STUPID does”, and so goes the reputation and credibility of Adam Kinzinger!

Of course she’s different then she was in Congress you baffon! In congress you strut around running your diarectic mandles without consequince. As Governor she is expected to make desisions that are in the best interest of her fellow citizens. She does this as well as anybody else in the country. The fact that she is still focused on her state is a huge testimate to her core values and a far better testimate to her moral standards than the likes of Kiningzer will ever hope to achive.
