As of early last week, the campaign calendar for former President Donald Trump seemed relatively quiet, with no new scheduled events. 

However, in a sudden turn of events, the Republican frontrunner’s campaign has added seven new events featuring prominent Republican women, some considered contenders for the vice presidential slot. 

Rising prominence: Noem and Greene’s scheduled speeches

The spotlight intensifies on South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene with their upcoming speeches in Iowa.

Governor Noem is set to speak on Jan. 3 in Sioux City, Iowa, while Rep. Greene will take the stage on Jan. 4 in Keokuk, Iowa. 

Both women, who have previously spoken at Trump campaign events, are gaining increased attention as Iowa’s crucial first-in-the-nation caucuses draw near.

Noem, Greene express interest in VP position with Trump

Noem and Greene have expressed interest in being President Trump’s running mate. 

Speculation about Trump’s leaning toward choosing a woman as his VP has been circulating since September when he mentioned liking the “concept” of a female running mate. 

Notably, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and others have suggested the likelihood of a woman being chosen.

Bannon’s perspective and potential candidates

Steve Bannon, in a podcast with ex-Trump press secretary Sean Spicer, asserted his belief that President Trump will choose a female VP. 

Bannon emphasized considering around ten women for the role, including Governor Noem, who publicly stated her acceptance of the offer in August. 

Bannon highlighted Noem’s understanding of the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement and her close ties to President Trump.

Skepticism arises over Noem and Greene as VP picks

However, Nathaniel Gavronsky, a Trump caucus captain in Iowa, expresses skepticism regarding Noem and Greene’s potential as VP picks. 

Gavronsky acknowledges their accomplishments but questions their ability to expand President Trump’s base, suggesting their supporters already align with Trump.

Campaign schedule and ‘MAGA events’

These events focus on messaging and are part of a campaign blitz leading to the Jan. 15 caucuses.
