A noted Republican senator dropped a big hint during a Newsmax TV interview on Friday that former President Donald Trump is likely to pick him to be his running mate and eventual vice president.

“Senator, I would love to moderate a debate with you, but I have a hunch that there might be a vice presidential debate,” said host Eric Bolling. “Maybe Kamala Harris will be debating Senator Tim Scott on that one, and I would be honored to moderate that one.”

“If you’re the guy moderating, maybe I’ll be talking to you,” Scott said in response. “We’ll see what happens… but we need a new president. And that’s Donald Trump.”

“And a new vice president, and is it you?” Bolling followed up.

“We’ll have to wait and see,” Scott, who ran for the 2024 GOP nomination but quickly endorsed Trump after the South Carolina Republican dropped out, replied.


The former Republican presidential contender revealed his plans to marry his longtime girlfriend, Mindy Noce, in January after proposing to her on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, according to Fox News. During an interview with host Trey Gowdy, the senator himself confirmed the announcement. He described the proposal as a significant moment in his life, comparable to the day he converted to Christianity.

“As a guy who is mostly an introvert and on the quiet side, having to have a conversation about the engagement is a little, you know, uncomfortable in a way, but it’s the most exciting thing I’ll do with my life besides making Jesus my Lord,” Scott said in the Sunday interview.

“I’ve been very patient and prayerful, and I’m really excited and somewhat nervous, and I couldn’t be more thankful for having found a soul mate and someone who shares a lot of the same interests, passions, and goals that I do,” he said.

“Going to the beach and getting on one knee, and asking Mindy to marry me was so much more important than anything else, and I wanted to make sure that that sacred day would not be disturbed by anything political,” Scott told Gowdy, a former U.S. congressman from South Carolina.

The couple first crossed paths during a post-church Bible study group. Noce, a successful property developer in South Carolina, is a mother of three. Scott briefly introduced her to a national audience during the November GOP presidential debate.

“My joke is as soon as I saw her picture, I figured it out. But the truth is, about two weeks into it, I knew there was something very different about her and her faith,” he said. “In our first conversation that went about an hour and a half or two, we ended up deciding to do a Bible study together.”

Earlier in the month, Scott appeared with Trump at a rally in New Hampshire and publicly endorsed his former rival. Interestingly, he chose to back Trump over another GOP primary opponent and his own state’s former governor, Nikki Haley.

“It’s time for us to unite our party so that we make sure that the only target we’re talking about is firing Joe Biden,” Scott emphasized after formally backing the former president at a Trump campaign rally in New Hampshire’s state capital city of Concord on Thursday.

“The best way for us to get rid of Joe Biden as our president is to unite our party now behind Donald Trump,” Scott, who ended his own 2024 presidential campaign in November, added.

Other former GOP candidates have also rallied around the former president.

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum teamed up with Trump at a rally in Indianola, Iowa, in January, and multi-millionaire biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy endorsed Trump shortly before Scott did, as he suspended his own campaign following a dismal finish in Iowa’s caucuses.
