( – Republican politicians who are interested in being former President Donald Trump’s vice president if he wins back the White House have reportedly been looking at former Vice President Mike Pence’s team for advice. 

Politico in a recent report noted that intermediaries for South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and New York Rep. Elise Stefanik have all tried to arrange meetings with a former Pence adviser in order to receive guidance on how to manage the vetting process. 

A member of Pence’s political team, who opted to speak anonymously, told the outlet that after everyone started to get out they saw “the handwriting on the wall.” This led to many of them wondering about how to best position themselves without being too obvious. 

The source also revealed to Politico that for the most part, they have been asking them to walk them through the process. 

Politico reported that Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders,  who had served during the first Trump administration might also be in the mix currently. The Source noted that they did not believe she was actively “pursuing anything.”

The source further noted that any contenders should be looking at ways to fundraise, be helpful, and add value. They added that in the Trump world to be visible one needed to be assisting with the cause. 

Prior to the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol attack, Pence had been perceived to be a sort of “Trump whisperer” and many of his advisers continue to be considered a very valuable resource.
