Governor of South Dakota Kristi Noemwas once a strong candidate for the position of former President Donald Trumphis vice presidential pick, suggested on Sunday that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee should pick a woman to run.

“Having a woman help him campaign would make a difference. Look, I can stay home in bed or feed the horses or rock my grandkids,” Noem said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program. “But I came to Wisconsin because I believe President Trump needs to win.”

Noem added that female voters tend to prioritize small business policies, along with child care and health carean issue where Trump has lagged behind President Joe Biden, according to polling in recent months.

In March, one Quinnipiac University Poll shows Trump’s support among female voters fell 5% after civil lawsuit filed by E. Jean Carroll regarding allegations of sexual assault and defamation.

Since then, the former president has also been convicted of the crime 34 crimes in a New York trial over hush money payments he made to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

Women’s support for Trump also poses a threat to his election chances in 2016, especially after leaked “Access Hollywood” tapes showed the Republican candidate giving crude comments about non-consensual sexual advances toward women.

“All the polls told him in these swing states that a woman on the ticket helped him win,” Noem said Sunday.

Noem’s comments also come as she solidifies her loyalty to Trump, despite reportedly being left off his vice presidential shortlist.

Trump has narrowed his search to four top candidates, according to NBC News: Governor of North Dakota. Doug BurgumFlorida Senator. Marco RubioSouth Carolina Senator. Tim Scott and Ohio Senator. J.D. Vance.

“I don’t care. I love my job in South Dakota,” Noem said Sunday of those reports.

Noem once had an optimistic outlook as a potential Trump running mate, but recent backlash over a controversial anecdote in her new memoir has lowered her standing. The excerpt describes a situation several decades ago, when Noem decided to shoot and kill her 14-month-old puppy, Cricket, due to misbehavior that she said caused safety concerns.

Noem has repeatedly stood by her decision to kill Cricket, including in Sunday’s interview: “That story is a 20-year-old story about a mother who made a very difficult decision to protect her child.” from a vicious animal attacking livestock.”
