Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has narrowed his list of potential running mates, saying he has “a very good list of five or six people.”

Speaking to the Associated Press, Trump said he will announce his vice presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention in July. He also reiterated his desire for a running mate with political experience who could help him get legislation passed in Congress.

The AP reported that Trump wouldn’t identify those on his shortlist, but also did not rule out New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Christie, who unsuccessfully ran for president this year before endorsing Trump, was tapped by the candidate this week to lead the campaign’s potential transition into the White House.
