WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

If Donald Trump is considering Sen. Joni Ernst as a vice presidential pick, that would be news to her.

The Iowa senator said she doesn't think an offer is coming.

"If I were being considered, I'm sure someone would've reached out and discussed that with me and I haven't seen that. I think his intention was to announce at the convention and that's coming right up, so I think he must have his eyes set on someone else and that's OK," said Sen. Ernst.

The GOP convention starts July 18th. Senator Ernst says she plans to be there.

She also says she'll continue to support Trump even if she disagrees with some of his ideas, like the proposed ban on Muslim immigrants.
