With 34 days remaining until the beginning of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, former President Donald Trump is beginning to narrow down his choices for a running mate for the November election.

If U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) had his way, Trump would pick U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.).

During an appearance on Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," Aderholt explained why he saw Scott at the best choice for Trump.

"Well, I will tell you who my pick would be if the president was asking me, which he has not, and I'm sure he won't. But if I had to say, I would say Tim Scott would have to be near the top of my list. I served with Tim in the House before he was appointed to the Senate, and he is someone that is a true conservative. He is someone who has stood by President Trump's side, and I think that's important whoever President Trump appoints. It's got to be someone he has full trust in. And while he did run against him in the primary, you know, when he saw that he was not going to be the nominee, he got on Trump's team.

So, he came out for Trump early. Even in South Carolina, which was very, I think, very difficult for him to do because, as you know and many of your listeners know, it was Nikki Haley who appointed him to the Senate. So, it was a very tough thing, but I think he knew that at the end of the day that, Trump was going to win and that he was going to be the nominee, and there was no way that Nikki Haley was going to be the nominee."

"So Tim Scott, in my book, he is a solid guy, conservative. He is a serious in his faith, Christian believer, and someone that doesn't just what I call showboat. He is really someone who is really a workhorse and who is very sincere. So I won't say I put my money on Tim Scott because I don't know what the president is thinking. But I think if he chose Tim Scott, it would be a wise choice."
