On the campaign trail, Republican candidate for president Vivek Ramaswamy surprised the political community by announcing that he would not be joining Donald Trump's ticket in 2024. In an exclusive interview with Cavuto Live, he stated that he would not like to be a part of the government. As a conservative, he believes that government should be focused on driving change instead of becoming a "number two."
Some people might think that Ramaswamy's decision to run for office was motivated by his ego or power. However, he explained that his goal is to reach out to the disaffected youth and bring back our national identity. It's refreshing to see politicians who prioritize the people's needs instead of their own personal gain.
A Fox Business host claimed that Trump could consider nominating Ramaswamy as his running mate. Although his chances of becoming the next vice president are slim, it is exciting to see an unconventional pick in politics. Unlike Joe Biden's strategy of keeping his base in place, Trump is known to go wherever he is needed.
Other politicians have also emerged as possible successors to Trump in 2024. Larry Elder, a Republican candidate for president, stated that he would not mind if Trump or DeSantis called him to ask him to be on their ticket. He noted that he would not let the matter go to voicemail. It's admirable to see politicians put aside their own ambitions to serve the party's best interests.

The various rumors about possible running mates include Byron Donalds, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Kari Lake, and Kristi Noem. It's interesting to see the diverse backgrounds of these potential picks, but one notable absence is Ron DeSantis of Florida. Although DeSantis has stated that he would not be joining Trump's ticket, it's disappointing to see the party's conservative members divided.
Although Trump is currently leading in the polls, it's important to keep in mind that things can still change in the political landscape. For instance, legal battles could affect the field of potential running mates. As a conservative, I'm committed to supporting the principles that will guide our country in the right direction.
