Donald Trump suggested on Wednesday that Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer are on his shortlist for a vice presidential candidate.
In an interview Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record,"
Trump was asked by host Greta Van Susteren whether any women are under consideration.
When Trump replied, "Actually, yes," Van Susteren noted that Brewer had suggested Fallin's name on her show the night before.
"Well, also Jan. Jan Brewer has been fantastic," Trump said. "She has been so fantastic. You know I won so big, her territory, we won so big. And she is a fabulous woman. And I agree with you, the governor of Oklahoma – fabulous person."
Trump said there are five to seven names on his short list, and the nominee would not be revealed until the convention this summer in Cleveland.
When asked about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, his former rival for the nomination who is now a supporter, Trump sidestepped.
"I don't want to say 'in there,' but he’s helping me and he was an early endorsement and a very enthusiastic one and he’s a friend of mine and a very good guy and a talented guy and he’s helping us a lot," Trump said.
