There’s no legal reason they can’t be from the same state.

However, the Constitution originally stated that the Electoral College would vote for two people; the highest vote-getter became President, and the runner-up became Vice President. That led to the President and VP being from different parties on several occasions, and it was changed by the Twelfth Amendment in 1804. However, a clause in Article II of the Constitution is still in effect:

The electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for two persons, of whom one at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves.

So in theory, if you had a President and a VP from the same state, the electors from that state could not vote for both the President and the Vice President. In 2000, Bush and Cheney had both been Texas residents, and the Bush/Cheney ticket narrowly won with 271 electoral votes. Had both of them declared Texas as their home states, the 32 Texas electors could not have voted for both Bush and for Cheney. They presumably would have all voted for Bush, making him President—but Cheney would have only had 239 electoral votes and would not have been elected Vice President. Had that happened, the choice of VP would have gone to the Senate—the last time that happened was 1837—and then things would get interesting. That scenario never happened, because Cheney declared Wyoming to be his home state. And in some elections, it would not matter; Ronald Reagan in 1984 won 525 electoral votes to Walter Mondale’s 13, so in the end Reagan could theoretically have had a Californian as his running mate and it wouldn’t have changed the result, since the VP would have won even without California’s 47 electoral votes. But to head off problems, it’s wisest for a party to pick candidates from different states. (Source: Can the president and the vice president be from the same state?)

There are other strategic reasons for picking Presidential and VP candidates from two different states. Candidates are often popular in their home states and will pick up a certain number of votes on that basis, either because they’ve served their state in elected office and people like what they did, or just because voters identify with their home states and like to see “their people” do well. (On the other hand, I moved to Arkansas while Bill Clinton was still President, and several people swore to me that “we only voted for Clinton for President to get him out of Arkansas!”) Most candidates will win the popular vote and the electoral college vote in their home states, although Donald Trump is a recent exception. The VP candidate may be able to help pick up a swing state that the Presidential candidate might not be able to pick up alone; for example, Tim Kaine may have helped Hilary Clinton win his home state, the closely contested swing state of Virginia, in 2016.

Sometimes this doesn’t happen—Dick Cheney and Joe Biden both came from small states that were already solidly allied with one party. Biden’s home of Delaware only had three electoral votes, and they were just about certain to go to the Democratic ticket, regardless of who was VP. But parties will also try to pick candidates that are different enough from each other to satisfy competing interests within the party. For example, Mike Pence was picked as Trump’s VP to curry favor with the religious right wing of the Republican Party. Joe Lieberman contrasted in several ways with Al Gore in 2000—more conservative vs. more liberal, Northern vs. Southern, Jewish vs. Protestant, and so on—and this was probably felt to draw a wider range of potential voters. Joe Biden had experience in national politics that Barack Obama didn’t have; so did Dick Cheney compared to George W. Bush, and Al Gore compared to Bill Clinton (although Gore and Clinton were otherwise pretty similar, both moderate Democrats from Southern states).

So for several strategic reasons, parties will usually pick Presidential and VP candidates from different states. But no law says that the President and VP must be from different states.

It is not from the Constitution. You don't understand the Constitution or are regurgitating false info you read online. Don't do that and then insult others.

Yep. I like DeSantis but he's no Trump. And they all flock to him like flies on shit. These are the same type of mouth breathing fucktards that will actually suggest a low IQ parrot like Candace Owens should be Vice President or even President. It's difficult to imagine being this retarded.
