Gov. Mary Fallin possible VP candidate?

Posted at 1:15 PM, Apr 25, 2016

Social media is buzzing after GOP front runner Donald Trump praised the idea of having Oklahoma's Governor, Mary Fallin, as his running mate in the 2016 election. 

2 Works for You sister station KFOR reports that Trump tweeted a political commentator who picked Fallin as a possible running mate for Trump.

Trump then tweeted back, seemingly approving of the idea.

According to KFOR, state GOP leaders say Fallin would bring experience to the national stage. State democratic leaders, however; are less impressed with the idea, saying Oklahoma has been in the news over the last few years for "embarrassing things."

Governor Fallin says it's an honor to be mentioned. “It's a great honor to even be mentioned as a possible consideration for vice president. However, my first and foremost goal is fulfilling my duties as governor to grow the economy while continuing to work on developing solutions for issues and challenges facing Oklahoma.”
