Donald Trump still isn't saying who he would choose as his running mate, should he win the Republican nomination for president.

But at a Q&A at Regent University Wednesday, he dropped a few hints.

"I would want somebody who could help me with government. So most likely, that would be a political person," Trump said.

The Republican front-runner also said the "main quality" he's looking for in a vice president would be someone who would be a "great president," should anything happen to him.

Now, Trump refused to name any names, but he did reveal some of the other GOP candidates could make the cut.

Many have speculated he could choose Florida Governor Rick Scott, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former rival Carly Fiorina or former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, to name a few.
