BREAKING: Donald Trump's VP Pick Confirmed by Insiders in Cleveland
Could this be the moment the GOP has been waiting for? Has Donald Trump actually chosen a running mate? According to the Washington Times, he's close. Times reporter Ralph Z. Hallow reports:
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.
The 57 year old Pence has served as Governor of Indiana since 2013. Before that, Pence spent over a decade in Congress, where he was widely regarded as a principled social and fiscal conservative.
