Report: Gov. Noem Meets With Trump in Florida

South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem, who is on the short list to be Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s vice president pick, met with the former president at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, on Monday, the Daily Caller reported.

Noem, 52, is in her second term as governor, which she won in November 2022 with 62% of the vote. Trump confirmed earlier this month that Noem is on his VP shortlist, along with Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., and former Hawaii Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.
