Fallin Endorses Trump's Presidential Bid, Welcomes VP Talk

May 4, 2016

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is offering her enthusiastic endorsement of Republican presidential contender Donald Trump, saying she supports the New York billionaire "100 percent."

Fallin also said Wednesday she's honored to be mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate and would be happy to consider such an offer.

Fallin said her priority is to elect a conservative, pro-business Republican who is strong on national defense, and that she believes Trump is that candidate.

The two-term governor has not previously endorsed any of the GOP candidates for president. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas won Oklahoma's March presidential primary with 34 percent of the vote over Trump, who was second.

Fallin said she hasn't been contacted by Trump or anyone with his campaign about running as vice president.
