Indiana governor to meet with Trump this weekend

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will meet with Donald Trump over the weekend amid speculation that he could join the Republican's presidential ticket.

A spokesman for the Pence's re-election campaign says Friday that Pence will "spend a little time" with Trump this weekend.

Spokesman Marc Lotter says the meeting is consistent with other meetings Trump is having with GOP party leaders in the run-up to the GOP's summer convention.

When asked about Pence as a potential running mate this week, Trump described him as "somebody we respect a lot."

Pence is well regarded among conservatives and has strong backing among many evangelical leaders in the Republican Party. He faces a difficult re-election battle in Indiana, due in part to his support for socially conservative policies.
