Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, named Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate just days before the Republican National Convention starts in Cleveland, Ohio. Trump won praise from the Republican leadership for his choice of Pence for vice president.
Mike Pence seems to be a good choice for Trump’s running mate. He has defined himself as “Christian, Conservative, and Republican, in that order.” He is a reliable social conservative who has good relationships with both the religious right and Republicans in Congress. He has government experience on both the state and national level, having served six terms in the House of Representatives before serving as the Governor of Indiana. He has the leadership experience to satisfy my requirements because he is a sitting governor.
I am anxious to see what happens at the Republican National Convention that starts tomorrow. I am also anxious to see how Pence handled the media. I am feeling a little optimistic at the moment. I hope this feeling continues!
