There’s less than a month until the Republican National Convention, and new reports are coming in that Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions is Donald Trump’s top choice for a running mate.
“The square Sessions seems to fit many square holes for Trump: he’s conservative and nails down the party’s right flank, he endorsed Trump early and has been extremely loyal, he has Washington legislative experience—a key requirement—and importantly, he can be totally trusted never to criticize Trump no matter what he might say in the coming months,” Newsmax’s Joseph Gizzi wrote, according to Western Journalism and Fox News.
“The selection will reassure conservatives,” G. Terry Madonna, a Franklin & Marshall college professor commented. “Sessions is one of the more conservative senators—that should be reassuring to economic conservatives and the religious right.”
Session has a score of 80 percent on the Heritage Action scorecard, far above the Republican average of 58 percent. He also has a 94 percent score in the lifetime rating for the American Conservative Unions (the sponsor of CPAC).
Trump is also rumored to be considering former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
What do you think? Would you support Sessions as Vice President?
