Politics – GOP senator says endorsement hinges on Trump’s running mate


Maine Sen. Susan Collins says who Donald Trump chooses as his running mate will play a big role in her decision to support his campaign. Collins says his running mate selection will provide some insight as to whether he is prepared to moderate his hard-edged campaign. “This evolves daily. There are surprises daily. And I’m going to see what happens at the convention,” Collins told David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” podcast. “It’s going to be very important to me whom Donald Trump chooses as his running mate. That is arguably the most important decision that a candidate can make.” Specifically, Collins wants to see if Trump will pick a vice president that can balance out some areas where he does not have experience, such as foreign policy. “I don’t like that Donald Trump calls anyone names,” she said. “I think that is un-presidential and not worthy of the kind of public discourse that we should have. And I have been critical of him for criticizing Hillary Clinton for ‘playing the woman’s card.’ I think that demeans her accomplishments and, as a woman, I’m particularly concerned when someone demeans the accomplishments of someone who has done a lot in her life, even if I don’t agree with that person.”
