Following Chris Christie’s lead, this Republican Governor is hopping aboard the Trump Train.
Gov. Mike Pence told delegates at the Indiana Republican Convention Saturday that it is a priority to re-elect GOP leadership in November to “accelerate on the success of our state,” and made a formal endorsement of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. He called on Hoosiers to make Indiana “the first state on the board” to elect Trump as President of the United States.
Trump campaigned hard in Indiana ahead of May’s primary and recorded a video for the convention. He described Indiana as a “firewall” for his candidacy, after support from Hoosier Republicans caused his rivaling opponents, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich to drop out of the presidential race.
