With Donald Trump expected to clinch the GOP nomination for president, many now wonder who he will pick as his running mate.

Speculation over Trump's vice president pick has included the names of such conservative heavy hitters as U.S. Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio), former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

However, on the eve of the primary in New Hampshire, another contender was added to that list: U.S. Sen. Katie Boyd Britt (R-Montgomery).

Newsmax's Mark Halperin suggested on Monday that Britt would add a lot of value to Trump's ticket by being able to spread the MAGA message to big city suburbs.

"I think Katie Britt is going to be who Trump picks. I'm going all in on that," Halperin said on Newsmax's "Wake Up America." "I just think you compare her to the other alternatives, her upsides are huge, her downsides are very minimal, and above all else, she can go into the suburbs of Philadelphia, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Phoenix. Most of the other people who are talked about would have trouble doing that, and she speaks fluent MAGA."

So far, Britt has yet to address the rumors of her possibly running as Trump's VP.

Trump is expected to win against former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in Tuesday's New Hampshire GOP primary. The other frontrunners in the race, Vivek Ramaswamy and Florida Gov. Ron Desantis, dropped out after Trump won in Iowa with over 51% of the vote. 

With a third-place finish in Iowa and weak polling in her own state, Haley isn't expected to last much longer short of a strong showing in New Hampshire.
