The sweepstakes to become Donald Trump’s running mate is entering the homestretch. 

Now the potential candidates are making their final pitches to join the Republican ticket.

And J.D. Vance made one surprising confession about becoming Donald Trump’s running mate.

J.D Vance talks about potentially joining Donald Trump on the GOP ticket

U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) has watched his political stock go through the roof over the past two years.

The 39-year-old political outsider won his first race in the 2022 Midterm Elections.

Now, he’s one of the leading contenders to become former President Donald Trump’s running mate.

Vance has become a top surrogate for Trump on the campaign trail and has emerged as a fighter for his America First agenda in the Senate.

He’s battling establishment-oriented contenders like North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum and U.S. Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) for the Vice Presidential nomination. 

Of all the top-tier contenders, he’s the best one suited to inherit Trump’s political movement and carry his legacy forward.

Vance would be the likely favorite for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2028 if he became Trump’s running mate.

Fox & Friends aired a series of interviews with Trump’s potential Vice Presidential picks and their spouses.

Being picked to run on the Republican ticket would open Vance up to an onslaught of attacks from Democrats and their media allies.

The Ohio lawmaker who chronicled his upbringing in the best-selling book, Hillbilly Elegy, thought his background would be a problem for Democrats.

“I grew up in a poor family, and I was raised in a working-class community,” Vance said of his upbringing in Middletown, Ohio. “So, I do think there’s something about my biography that makes it a little bit harder for these guys to attack me, and maybe that’s why they fear me.”

J.D. Vance gives a surprising answer on becoming Vice President

Vance would get to square off with Vice President Kamala Harris in a debate if he gets picked by Trump.

No date has been set for the Vice Presidential debate, but it’s expected to be in July or August, meaning that he would need to be ready in short order.

“I actually do know what I believe, and I’m not afraid to say, ‘Look, I was wrong’ or ‘I was right about this issue,’ but it’s not talking points with me,” Vance said. “Politicians are really good at saying things very well, but not actually saying anything at all. But that’s the Kamala Harris problem, right? I just listened to her for 10 minutes, and she didn’t say anything.”

Fox & Friends co-host Lawrence Jones asked how he would react if Trump went in a different direction.

“I’m human, right? And so, when you know this thing’s a possibility, and it doesn’t happen, there’s certainly gonna be a little bit of disappointment,” Vance admitted.

“But, I think the bigger thing is, it’s such a cool thing to get to do the job that I do and frankly, more importantly than that, I love being a dad,” Vance added.

Clearly, J.D. Vance has a bright political future no matter what direction Donald Trump decides to go.
