Sources close to Donald Trump state that Newt Gingrich and Mike Pence have made the final cut to run alongside him as Vice President. Gingrich is a former House Speaker, and Pence is the Governor of Indiana.
New Jersey’s Chris Christie is also in the running.
Trump is expected to make an official announcement on Friday, according to a source close to the matter. Pence was praised by Trump during his speech in Indiana on Tuesday. Pence introduced Trump to the crowd, and he stated, “Hillary Clinton must never become president of the United States.”
Sources state that Trump and Pence had a private conversation at the fundraiser.
Trump stoked the fire during his rally when he said, “You’re gonna call him and you’re gonna say governor, or vice president, we’re winning too much,” of Pence.
The presumptive Republican nominee was slated to spend the night in Indiana, but cancelled his plans and continued to Indianapolis for the night. A Trump aide stated that it’s “logistically easier” to go from Indianapolis to California.
Earlier in the day on Tuesday, Pence compared Trump to Ronald Reagan with Trump’s campaign slogan “make America great again.”
“I think he is someone who has connected with everyday Americans like no one since Ronald Reagan,” stated Pence.
