CNN: Donald Trump to name Gov. Mike Pence vice president

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — 4:15 p.m. — Donald Trump announced on Twitter Thursday that he was to postpone his vice president announcement in New York on Friday in light of the attack in France

4:00 p.m. — The New York Times, as well as the British Broadcasting Corporation are claiming Donald Trump is choosing Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate.

The Republican Convention starts in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday and it appears Trump will go there with his top team in place and some are wondering, is a conservative governor from Indiana the right choice?

The New York Times has reported that Trump has chosen Pence and that Pence has accepted.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has been campaigning with Trump over the last couple of weeks. He’s a former congressman and talk show host.

The only official word from the Trump campaign is that he will make his decision official at a news conference Friday in New York City.

Some Republicans are already onboard with Pence as a VP pick.

According to a recent Quinnipiac Poll in the state of Indiana, Mike Pence has a very low approval rating there, suggesting it is around 38 percent.

If it is Pence, he will now face national scrutiny standing next to Donald Trump.

Again, the official announcement will be 8 a.m. on Friday in New York.
