Trump floats unexpected choice for VP; here’s what he said

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump tossed out the name of a person he’s considering as his running mate in the event he gets the GOP nomination — and it’s not someone one would normally think of.

Former Sen. Scott Brown, who represented Massachusetts, but now resides in New Hampshire, got the nod this weekend. 

While speaking at a Portsmouth, New Hampshire rally Saturday, Trump said that Brown would make a “very good” vice president.

When Trump asked Brown if he would consider another political run, an audience member suggested a Trump-Brown ticket.

“Vice president – hey, that sounds like it could, hey, hey, very good,” Trump responded.

“Hey, you know what? And he’s central casting. Look at that guy. Central casting,” he said. “He’s great. Great guy and a great, beautiful, great wife and family. So important.”

After losing his Senate re-election bid to Elizabeth Warren in 2012, Brown moved to New Hampshire and challenged incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. The Democratic senator retained her seat in the 2014 squeaker.
