The Washington Times reported that Republican Indiana Governor Mike Pence will be Donald Trump's running mate. I believe it for two reasons. 1. The Washington Times has good sources. 2. The Washington Post does not, which is why Pence's name was not included in Chris Cillizza's "The 5 people most likely to be Donald Trump’s vice president."
It remains a tie between Cillizza and Bill Kristol as to whom has been the most wrong about Trump.
From the Washington Times:
Constitutional lawyer James Bopp, an Indiana delegate to the Republican National Convention who is close the governor, told The Washington Times that Indiana House Speaker Brian C. Bosma, 58, a conservative Republican, had sought advice from him on running for governor.
“He wanted my counsel on what he needed to do to set himself up to run for governor, because he expects Pence to step down as governor in order to be Trump’s running mate,” Mr. Bopp said in an interview.
The Trump election team boosted the Pence speculation Sunday by suddenly adding a campaign rally in Indianapolis to a fundraiser planned for Tuesday featuring Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence.
Several Republicans close to the campaign and to the governor have told The Times over the last 24 hours that they are now convinced it’ll be Mr. Pence.Pence was liked by conservatives but did not want to put his family through that wringer. Now with a tough re-election campaign ahead of him, Pence may bail and run for vice president.
Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich has parted company with Fox News as a paid contributor. That may be a sign of a vice presidential candidacy for him. Or maybe he will file a sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes.
We shall see.
