Condollezza Rice’s chief of staff came out with a press conference about the rumors about Rice running with Trump as his V.P. pick.
Cross another one off Donald Trump’s list of potential running mates.
Condoleezza Rice has no interest in serving as Trump’s vice president, Rice’s chief of staff Georgia Godfrey confirmed to POLITICO on Friday.
“Dr. Rice has repeatedly said in past cycles as well as this one, she’s not interested in being vice president,” Godfrey said in a statement. “She’s happy at Stanford and plans to stay.”
Godfrey also said Rice will not be attending the Republican National Convention next month. Yahoo News first reported the developments.
Rice’s name has been floated as a possible vice presidential candidate, but she now joins a growing list of top Republicans who have publicly ruled out running with Trump. Rice served as a national security adviser under George W. Bush and now works at Stanford University.
Previously there were plenty of speculation about Judge Jeanine Piro as being Trumps first choice for V.P. pick. Those speculations were denied immediately.
What do you think, who will Trump chose as his running mate? Feel free to give us some hints!
