This week started off badly for Donald Trump after he shockingly lost the Iowa caucus, but now he’s bounced by securing a huge endorsement from someone who could very well end up becoming his Vice President should he win the nomination.
According to Conservative Tribune, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Republican Scott Brown officially announced his endorsement for Trump on Wednesday night. He reportedly made the decision to endorse The Donald a few days ago, but the campaign kept the secret closely guarded until last night.
The endorsement came as a surprise to few, as Trump recently floated the idea of Brown becoming his Vice President during a New Hampshire campaign rally.
“Vice president — hey, that sounds like it could, hey, hey, very good,” Trump said of Brown.
“Hey, you know what? And he’s central casting. Look at that guy. Central casting,” Trump added of Brown, who hosted the rally. “He’s great. Great guy and a great, beautiful, great wife and family. So important.”
At that event, Brown referred to Trump as the “the next president of the United States.” Though he didn’t officially endorse him then, he eluded to it when he laid out the criteria he has for who he endorses.
“Somebody who is not afraid to make a decision and doesn’t always follow the polls; sometimes who will be politically incorrect and will do what’s best for this country. … Someone also who is not afraid to admit when they’re wrong,” he said of his ideal candidate.
