Tuesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak joined the broadcast to talk about the pending announcement of who will be selected to be Joe Biden's running mate in the race for the White House.

Mackowiak and Hasty discussed the pros and cons of major candidates, who has the best chances and why. The leading candidates discussed included Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, and former UN ambassador and national security advisor Susan Rice.

About the importance of the selection Mackowiak said,

This is the most consequential vice presidential choice in a generation, given all the questions around Biden, given the likelihood that he doesn't run for reelection. He's basically choosing the front-runner for 2024, and perhaps someone who becomes president before then, if he were to win. It is a very consequential choice. I do think, given kind of where we live in, this person's going to face more scrutiny than anyone who's ever been selected for vice president. Far more than he did in 2008, far more than Sarah Palin did in 2008, I think it's going to be pretty relentless.
