IN governor Mike Pence said to be Trump's running mate

With reports saying Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is Donald Trump's choice for running mate in the presidential election, more is being revealed about the longtime politician.

Pence accepted an offer from Trump to serve as his Republican running mate.

But the Indianapolis Star reported Thursday that he is dropping his re-election bid to run with Trump.

Gingrich told an ABC News correspondent earlier that he expected to hear Trump's decision soon and would not be surprised if Trump chose Pence.

"I haven't made my final, final decision", Trump said on Fox News.

Update: Trump has chose to postpone the announcement because of the truck attack in Nice, France.

Pence quickly exited a speaking event in Indianapolis Thursday morning without taking questions from reporters. "He is someone who shows what happens when you sit down and talk to these different constituencies and come up with something that works, and that's what IN ended up doing IN the long run". Local television stations posted video showing him arriving at a private airport outside NY and then entering a hotel.

An uplifting convention spectacle: At 10:30 a.m, 125,000 balloons are set to be inflated for the Republican National Convention at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Christie as New Jersey governor was part of a scandal that shut down a major bridge into NY, and Gingrich had an affair with a junior staffer while he was in the House of Representatives.

"Mike Pence appointed me to serve on the board of directors for House conservatives, and I attended his inauguration in IN", said U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands.

Pence has influential allies in Trump's inner circle.

"We are 119 days away from a great victory in the United States of America, when in becomes the first state on the board to make Donald Trump the 45 president of the United States of America", said Pence. He met Tuesday with some of Trump's adult children, but Trump was not present. Gingrich, the fiery Republican who helped define the political battles of the 1990s, told The Associated Press that Trump was supposed to let him know something in the afternoon.

The billionaire has tested the suitability of his potential running mates at audition-like campaign appearances, culminating on Tuesday in IN with Mr Pence's appearance at a rally in an Indianapolis suburb. State law prevents seeking two offices at once, and Pence has until noon Friday to withdraw his name as a gubernatorial candidate so he could be listed as the vice presidential nominee.

Pence's one term as governor has drawn mixed reaction, and he has managed to alienate moderate Republicans over social issues. Essentially, it allowed people and businesses to deny services to LGBT people if they had a strong enough religious belief.

A "Trump-Pence 2016" ticket would inject political orthodoxy into an unconventional campaign, partnering a career politician - once the third-ranking Republican in Congress - with a brash outsider.

The Democratic presidential candidate said the United States and France will never let terrorists undermine democratic values.
