esquire.com – CLEVELAND, OHIO—Sometime on Friday, if The Indianapolis Star is to be believed, Governor Mike Pence of Indiana will be chosen by He, Trump as the Republican candidate for vice president of the United States. The paper bases its report, apparently, on the fact that Pence is dropping his re-election bid, which was going to be a tough haul in any event.
IndyStar has confirmed that Trump plans to announce Pence as his selection for vice president, ending a weeks-long vice presidential casting call during which Trump vetted a handful of high-profile Republicans. Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said “a decision has not been made.” A formal announcement is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday in Manhattan. The long-awaited decision upends the political landscape in Indiana and at least partially remakes the Trump campaign in Pence’s image.
