Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is “95 percent” likely to pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, according to the Washington Times.
Sources close to Pence and to the Trump campaign tell Washington Times’ reporter Ralph Hallow that Pence is the probable vice presidential (VP) pick.
The Trump campaign announced Sunday it would hold a campaign rally near Indianapolis on Tuesday night, furthering the rumor that Pence will be announced as the VP choice.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Sen. Jeff Session (R-AL), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) were among others in addition to Pence that have been floated as possible vice presidential choices for Trump up until now.
