Trump advisers signal that Pence is likely running mate

“Donald J. Trump’s campaign has signaled strongly to Republicans in Washington that he will pick Mike Pence, the governor of Indiana, as his running mate, though Republicans caution the party’s mercurial presidential candidate may still backtrack on his apparent choice,” as the New York Times is reporting.

“Mr. Trump’s advisers have told national Republican officials that they are preparing to make an announcement with Mr. Pence, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, who were not authorized to discuss them publicly. His campaign has said that it will unveil a running mate for Mr. Trump in New York on Friday.

“Mr. Pence, a former congressman and radio host, emerged over the last week as the strong favorite of Mr. Trump’s political advisers and senior officials in the Republican Party.”

  1. Of Interest?
    From Rebane’s, about one year ago.

    Karl Rove (remember him?) says Trump’s Republican support comes from “people who believe the country is going down the tubes and are angry that the GOP hasn’t stopped President Obama.” Rove predicts Trump won’t get the nomination, but will make life tougher for the Republican nominee.

    The Wall Street Journal editorializes today that Trump “won’t win a GOP caucus or primary, but he is notable as a Democratic weapon against the Republicans.” His bombast “doesn’t represent the Republican Party. It represents what Hillary Clinton and her media allies want voters to believe about the Republican Party.”

    Go ahead guys, keep boosting Trump. Hillary will thank you later.

  2. Wondering about what a Trump Presidency could bring? Here is one possibility that should be of big concern to all of us. I don’t know how realistic giving states control of existing Federal lands is, but it would have to be fought against with everything the conservation community, hunters, outdoor recreationists and who ever else, has for political resources, lobbying efforts, public relations/media efforts, and of course – the court system. This could take one hell of a fight to stop. And if it does come up for a vote in Congress if Trump wins and Republicans keep control, it must be stopped.
