Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy said Saturday that he would reject an offer to become someone else’s vice president if he does not win the GOP nomination in 2024.

“I’m not interested in a different position in the government,” Ramaswamy said on Fox News. “Frankly, I’d drive change through the private sector sooner than becoming number two or three in the federal government.”

Later on Saturday, while speaking with Erick Erickson at an Atlanta-area conference, he also pushed back on a comment that he was too young to seek the presidency. Ramaswamy, who recently turned 38, is the youngest contender in the GOP primary field.

“My wife and I, we reflected on this: Should we wait 20 years, when our sons are out of the house, when we might have some more experience?” Ramaswamy said. “The truth is, I don’t think we have 20 years left as a country if we just passively stand by and watch.”
