Washington Post Claims Anti-Gay Indiana Gov. Mike Pence Will be Trumps Vice Pres. Running Mate

Mike Pence To Be Trumps VP Running Mate

 

Via The Washington Post…..

Scrambling among Indiana politicians has reached the point where Republican Party insiders are convinced that presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump will pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate.

Constitutional lawyer James Bopp, an Indiana delegate to the Republican National Convention who is close the governor, told The Washington Times that Indiana House Speaker Brian C. Bosma, 58, a conservative Republican, had sought advice from him on running for governor.

“He wanted my counsel on what he needed to do to set himself up to run for governor, because he expects Pence to step down as governor in order to be Trump’s running mate,” Mr. Bopp said in an interview.

The Trump election team boosted the Pence speculation Sunday by suddenly adding a campaign rally in Indianapolis to a fundraiser planned for Tuesday featuring Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence.

Several Republicans close to the campaign and to the governor have told The Times over the last 24 hours that they are now convinced it’ll be Mr. Pence.

For those of you who don’t remember in 2015 Pence signed a measure into law in Indiana that allowed businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers in the name of “religious freedom.” stating:

“Today I signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, because I support the freedom of religion for every Hoosier of every faith. The Constitution of the United States and the Indiana Constitution both provide strong recognition of the freedom of religion but today, many people of faith feel their religious liberty is under attack by government action.”

Trump & Pence………Dumb & Dumber

    Your text says Washington Post, but your links are to the Washington Times. There’s a big difference between the two.
