Donald Trump on Monday spent part of his July 4th with Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, fueling speculation that the Iowa freshman senator could be on the short list of his vice presidential picks.
Ernst, along with Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana, established the Senate RV Caucus to match the House RV Caucus that was started by Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Florida, Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Indiana and Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nevada.
Ernst has told Fox News that she and Trump had a "good conversation," adding, "I will continue to share my insights with Donald about the need to strengthen our economy, keep our nation safe, and ensure America is always a strong, stabilizing force around the globe."
