Trump looks to Pence as VP

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has chosen Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, US media said on Thursday in an overture to conservative skeptics as he looks for unity at the party’s convention.

Trump will formally announce his vice presidential pick on Friday, with three days to go until Republicans gather in Cleveland, Ohio to officially select the White House nominee who will face Hillary Clinton in November.

US networks CNN and ABC reported without naming their sources that Pence, a 57-year-old Christian evangelical and stalwart of the American right, had already accepted the VP slot.
