USA: And The Winner Is – Pence For VP – Announced Donald Trump’s Camp

By Alistair Reign, July 14. 2016. Alistair Reign News Blog.

Indiana Governor, Mike Pence has been reported as Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick, according to multiple media outlets. Gov. Pence is a former House GOP leader who served in the chamber from 2001 to 2013.

Pence had been on a final shortlist for the spot along with former Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, according to Trump. He was also the overwhelming favorite of GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

This is getting serious folks. Trump steps up his game – again.

Governor Pence Will Bring Credibility To The Republican’s Campaign.

More importantly, Governor Pence fills Trump’s need for someone who could work with Congress from the executive branch, and he would also do much to shore up Trump’s relationships with social conservatives and GOP officials. According to Harper Neidig’s article in The Hill today:

What he needs is someone who is credible who can help him govern if he is successful,” Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) told The Hill earlier this week. “There’s nobody with more interesting ideas in Washington than Newt Gingrich, but that’s a different issue than actually governing day-to-day. I don’t see that as his strong suit.” [01]
