Amid speculation that Trump, the front-runner in the 2024 GOP presidential primary, was considering her as his running mate, Noem was asked Thursday during an interview on Newsmax whether she would consider such an offer.

Newsmax host Eric Bolling told Lake that she and Noem were likely among the frontrunners for potential vice presidential picks, saying Trump would be “crazy” not to have them on his shortlist.

Lake began by saying she was happy that Noem was supporting Trump before pointing out how she had supported the former president “before he even jumped into” the 2024 race.

While discussing her own name in relation to being Trump’s vice president, Lake insisted she “didn’t think about it” before apparently lashing out at Noem.

“Anyone who talks about and dreams of office in the second Trump administration really needs to get off their high horse,” Lake said, adding that the focus should be on “the ground and start making sure for Trump to have a second administration. “

“That’s what I do,” she said. “I don’t think of any other position except how can we save our republic.”

On Friday night, Noem endorsed Trump for president at a campaign rally he held in Rapid City, South Dakota, during which she said he was “the only person in the race who I have the confidence to do what needs to be done.”

News week contacted Noem’s office via email for comment.

Lake was the Republican candidate in the 2022 Arizona gubernatorial election, but refused to concede when she lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs. She tried to overturn the result, but several courts rejected her legal efforts.

Lake’s campaign was supported by Trump, but was marked by various controversies, including promoting false claims that the former president had won the 2020 election. His stance on the election was also subject to criticism. ‘a question from British journalist and broadcaster Piers Morgan on his show this week.

In a discussion about the prison sentence handed down to Enrique Tarrio, leader of the neo-fascist group Proud Boys, who participated in the January 6, 2021 insurrection, the host of Piers Morgan uncensored told Lake that “the enemies are people who are truly propagating the myth of the stolen election, like you.”

Defending Tarrio and those charged over the Capitol assault, Lake said the insurrection was an organized riot and that “evidence is emerging” that the election was fraudulent.
