Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is not interested in being Donald Trump's running mate, her chief of staff said Friday.

"Dr. Rice has repeatedly said in past cycles as well as this one, she's not interested in being vice president," the spokeswoman, Georgia Godfrey, told Yahoo News in a statement. "She's happy at Stanford and plans to stay."

In addition, Rice "does not plan to go to the convention," she said. The Republican National Convention will be held next month in Cleveland.

Rice, 61, who served under President George W. Bush, has long said that she was not interested in seeking elective office.

Now a political science professor at Stanford University and a fellow at the Hoover Institution, Rice was been rumored recently as a possible Trump running mate.

Even supporters at a Trump rally in Tampa, Fla., last week shouted out Rice's name among several when the presumptive nominee asked for possible candidates.

Her name was among the three Trump repeated from the podium.

But Rice will help down-ballot GOP candidates, a source told Yahoo.

"She plans on doing a few events to help her friends in the Senate," said the person, who was not named. "She’s concerned about down-the-ballot races and wants to be helpful where she can."
