He wants a politician in the second seat.
Bloomberg's John McCormick reports:
A day after running the tables in the Nevada caucuses, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he'd likely look for someone with political experience as a running mate if he wins the nomination -- maybe even someone he has run against.
"I would want somebody that could help me with government, so most likely that would be a political person," the billionaire said Wednesday during an appearance in Virginia, a state voting on next week's so-called Super Tuesday. "You want somebody that can help you with legislation, getting it through."
Trump didn't mention any names from the 2016 Republican field, but did say that "some of the people I've dealt with I do have a lot of respect for and I like."-RW
