If Donald Trump wants to win Virginia and peel the maximum number of votes away from Hillary Clinton, he ought to pick former Virginia senator and military veteran Jim Webb as his vice presidential pick.
Webb, who is an accomplished writer, entrepreneur, foreign policy expert and democrat, would add tons of gravitas to Trump’s presidential bid and would further the notion that Donald’s campaign is less about party and more about America.
Virginia is a key battleground state and Webb is still extremely popular there. He is also at odds with his own party on many many issues. This makes Webb a real maverick and a perfect running mate for Donald Trump.
Finally, Webb is respected by both sides of the aisle and nobody questions his ability to assume the responsibilities of the presidency if something were to happen to Donald Trump.
Team Trump needs to seriously consider Jim Webb for vice president.
