Consider This from NPR   /     And the nominee is...? Who will Trump Pick for V.P.?


We are just weeks away from one of the biggest political events of the election campaign season: the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.

NPR's Franco Ordoñez and Jeongyoon Han break down which candidates are rising to the top and why it matters.
