Former President and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump confirmed a list of six potential running mates during a Wednesday town hall event in South Carolina.

At the town hall, held by Fox News in Greenville, Trump was asked by the network’s Laura Ingraham if the list, which included Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fl), Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and former nomination candidates Vivek Ramaswamy, Sen. Tim Scott (R. S.C.), Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, is accurate.

Trump responded that all of them are on his shortlist, but refused to say when he would announce his choice. “All of those people are good. They’re all solid,” he said.

The former president’s only remaining rival for the nomination is former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who despite being far behind Trump in the polls and not winning any of the early states, has stated that she will not give up.

Haley’s home state, South Carolina, is set to hold primary elections Saturday. She trails Trump by 30 points in the state, according to polling averages from The Hill/Decision Desk HQ.

Trump said that he’s looking for a vice presidential candidate who can help him from the “voter’s standpoint” who has “common sense” on issues such as interest rates, immigration, and electric vehicles.
