North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum Avoids Committing to Being Trump's Running Mate in 2024

In a recent interview, Governor Doug Burgum of North Dakota sidestepped the question of whether he would like to be Donald Trump's vice president if the former president runs in the 2024 election. When pressed by Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum, Burgum made it clear that the decision ultimately rests with President Trump, indicating a sense of deference towards Trump's authority in making this significant choice.

Despite being rumored as a potential candidate for the vice-presidential position, Doug Burgum, drawing on his background as a former businessman, highlighted his support for Trump and underscored the advantages of having someone with a business background in the presidential role. Trump, who has shown admiration for Burgum's governance as the governor of North Dakota, is yet to disclose his pick for a running mate, intensifying speculation around who will join his campaign for the 2024 election. The dynamics of Trump's search for a new running mate have been under scrutiny, particularly following his strained relationship with Mike Pence, which has spurred discussions about possible contenders like Burgum and Senator Marco Rubio, who also is reportedly vying for the nomination.
