Pence: No offer yet from Trump for VP pick

Pence, who is now running for a second term as IN governor, is thought to be on the shortlist of candidates the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is considering for the No. 2 slot on the ticket.

Donald Trump's campaign is planning a rally in the Indianapolis area following a fundraiser in the city with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence next week.

"We've directed our Civil Rights Commission and the Indiana State Police to renew our efforts at reaching out in communities and ensuring that at law enforcement at every level in Indiana is listening to and sensitive to the needs and challenges that people are facing", says Pence. "The next five days will spell it all out", Heaton said, referring to the Indianapolis Trump fundraiser.

Pence abided and signed the hat, adding to speculation as he remains on a dwindling list of vice presidential contenders with Trump.

Pence said Thursday that he strongly advocates for Trump's race to the White House, and urged all Republicans "to get on board". Conway, two national GOP operatives said, began pitching Pence as a vice presidential pick to Trump's team as soon as Ted Cruz withdraw from the race.

And at the height of the battle, one of Pence's greatest political strengths - his unerring ability to deliver the message he wants despite dogged questioning - became a crippling weakness under the national media spotlight.

The damage to Pence's brand was deep: His support plummeted from 62% in February of 2015 to 45% and his disapproval rating rose to 46%, according to a poll conducted by Bellwether Research for Howey Politics Indiana. However, Etling said he is more concerned with the impact on the race for IN governor. He articulates the conservative viewpoints very well.

"The whole issue is very tragic and it's very disheartening that it happened", says Susan Bradtmueller, who attended the ceremony.

Morrison said there are likely at least 10 people who could be selected to fill the GOP's slot for governor, including House Speaker Brian Bosma or even U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita. IN was the state that clinched the Republican nomination for him. We don't have to run a retread like the Democrats for governor.

Conservative lawmakers, not Pence, started the push for Indiana's "Religious Freedom Restoration Act", which ultimately proved deeply unpopular with the business community.

"It would be an interesting exercise". "I don't know anything". "Whoever is chosen as the Republican candidate for governor would have to raise a lot of money in a short time and build on name recognition". A May poll showed Pence leading Democratic challenger John Gregg 40% to 36%t, a virtual tie when factoring in the poll's 4-percentage-point margin of error.

On Tuesday, while campaigning for re-election as governor at a county fair, he told reporters that he is "ready, willing and able to help Donald Trump anywhere he asks us to help him".

"He will appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court", he said of Trump. "They know Gregg and Pence due to their long-term campaigning", said Marvel, a Democrat.

Early, the former state Republican Party chairman who headed up Trump's primary campaign in IN, spoke Thursday evening to about 40 people at the Republicans for Unification meeting in Anderson.
