Gov. Baker: Pence has been successful as Indiana governor

Trump has spent weeks consulting with friends and family as he weighs the most important decision of his campaign to date.

Trump and his new running mate will make their first appearance as a team Friday in NY.

Pence is in a heated re-election bout to hold on to his in governorship.

Pence, like Trump, has also show a disdain for the free press.

At any rate, Trump will no longer be announcing his pick at 11 a.m. Eastern Friday, as originally planned.

Some Republicans urged caution well into Thursday evening. In light of the attack in Nice, France Trump tweets he is postponing his vice presidential announcement.

Jason Miller, Trump's senior communications adviser, added: "A decision has not been made by Mr. Trump".

And he has been a consistent supporter of trade deals that Trump says have shortchanged Americans.

And Pence's quiet, low profile personality, shaped in large part by his Christian faith, poses little threat of overshadowing that of Trump, who values loyalty in the people who work with him.

"I have no information that I can confirm or deny", he told reporters on the plane.

Asked what his gut feeling was, Gingrich told CNN that he "would not be at all surprised if it was Pence".

"Mike's got a lot of strengths and he's substantially younger". At 57, he's a bit younger than the 70-year-old Mr Trump.

Until now Trump and Pence did not know each other particularly well. "That's something Trump has to personally sort through".

A couple prospective running mates withdrew their names from consideration in the days leading up to Trump's decision, including a pair of USA senators, Bob Corker of Tennessee and Joni Ernst of Iowa.

Earlier this year, Pence signed House Bill 1337, which would ban abortion doctors from knowingly aborting an unborn baby exclusively because of a genetic disability such as Down syndrome, the unborn baby's race or sex. Gingrich was also home in McLean, Virginia, and was seen taking out the trash in the morning before driving to his office in Arlington, Virginia.

Sources close to Pence and Trump were preparing for the likelihood of a Pence pick early Thursday but warned that the final choice would be made by the candidate alone.

Welcome to NY, and perhaps the vice presidency, Mike Pence.

Donald Trump greets Indiana Gov. Mike Pence at the Grand Park Events Center on Tuesday in Westfield, Indiana. ABC News also reports that Pence has formally accepted Trump's offer.

Here are 13 things to know about Pence, who beat out New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich for the job. Trump and Pence have since met to discuss the running mate position. He has also signed similarly restrictive measures on women's reproductive health.

He was among the first Republicans to embrace the tea party on Capitol Hill. A former radio host, he once called himself "Rush Limbaugh on decaf", and it's safe to say he would be blacked out by Trump's gargantuan shadow.

Pence would give Trump a younger, conservative favorite to help heal the rift within the Republican Party and ease the minds of many still skeptical of the presumptive presidential nominee.

Pence ran for governor in 2012 after serving in the U.S. Congress. His campaign for governor received more than $850,000 from the energy sector, about 3 percent of the total, according to campaign finance disclosures.

Harry Reid, the top Senate Democrat, had sharp words for Trump, regardless of who he selects.
