The Indianapolis Star is confirming Trump's choice of running mate:
Gov. Mike Pence is dropping his re-election bid in Indiana to become Donald Trump’s running mate.My hot take: The GOP ticket is now a bizarre combination of insane, offensive egomaniac and boring, backwards ultraconservative. I don't see how this is anything but a win for Hillary Clinton.
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.
