WASHINGTON (AP) — As his rivals spend the day holding town halls and meet-and-greets in early-voting states, Donald Trump is heading to South Dakota today for a party fundraiser that will double as an opportunity for the state’s governor, Kristi Noem, to showcase herself as a potential vice presidential pick.
Trump will join the South Dakota Republican Party in Rapid City for a “Monumental Leaders Rally.”
Noem, who has been billed as a “special guest,” will appear alongside the former president and GOP front-runner.
She has planned the event as a way to both offer her endorsement of Trump as well as maximize face time with him as he eyes potential 2024 running mates.
