The governor of South Dakota. Kristi Noem, once a serious contender for former President Donald Trump’s running mate, suggested Sunday that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee should choose a female running mate.

“Having a wife helping him campaign makes a difference. Look, I could be home in bed, feeding my horses or rocking my grandbabies,” Noem said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But I’m in Wisconsin because I believe President Trump must win.”
