Donald Trump met privately with Indiana governor Mike Pence inside the governor’s mansion on Wednesday morning. His influential children – daughter Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric – accompanied the GOP candidate as speculation over Trump’s final vice presidential pick reached fever pitch. There are strong indications that Trump’s family members, who have become close advisors inside his campaign, are engaged in a final round of vetting of vice presidential finalists.

The breakfast meeting was also a sign that Pence, the former House Republican leader who is well regarded by conservatives and establishment Republicans, remains a leading contender to be Trump’s running mate.

“It’s a little bit like The Apprentice,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, another VP finalist, told Fox News Channel Tuesday. “You find out sooner or later who the last one standing is.”
