PHOENIX — As businessman-turned-presidential-candidate Donald Trump seemingly inches his way toward the Republican nomination, many of his supporters are starting to seek out his potential running mates.
One of the names thrown in the metaphorical ring is none other than former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, according to the Arizona Business Journal.
Brewer was among several vice presidential candidate options after the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out an email to its supporters asking who would be a good partner for Trump.
She acknowledged the rumors of a Trump-Brewer ticket on Sunday.
Other suggestions consisted of former presidential candidates Ben Carson and Chris Christie, Sarah Palin, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich.
Brewer announced her support for the GOP frontrunner back in February and has not stepped down from her position since.
She even claimed that a computer glitch left her name off of a list of potential pro-Trump delegates during Arizona’s Republican convention and called out Mitt Romney for his “harsh” words about the businessman.
As a result, the convention led to immediate backlash from supporters of the billionaire.
