Fox News Channel mainstay Bill O’Reilly says Donald Trump has one choice for his running mate if he hopes to win the White House. Politico reports that O’Reilly singled out Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico.
O’Reilly put Martinez’s name out there during his show Thursday night. The Fox host said Martinez “cuts across all ethnic boundaries that he’s weak in, she’s very bright, she is a Republican conservative in a state that would go, you know, it’s not a lot of electoral votes, but if he can convince Gov. Martinez to be on the second, that will help him immensely.”
But Martinez may not be the most comfortable fit for Trump. Politico notes that Martinez “endorsed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio less than two weeks before the end of his campaign, suggesting in the same week that she would not commit to vote for Trump as the GOP nominee. She also supports comprehensive immigration reform, a position wildly at odds with Trump’s call to revoke birthright citizenship, deport millions of undocumented immigrants, and build a wall along the Mexican border.”
