Presumptive GOP nominee Donald TrumpDonald TrumpPaul Ryan pans Trump's deportation plan Reports: Trump running mate revealed Friday Ryan scolds Ginsburg over Trump criticism MORE said Tuesday he has a "pretty good" idea of who he will choose as his running mate.

For now, they're drumming up support in the Hoosier state with a fundraiser, Trump's campaign hopes will raise around $1 million. "But I'm supporting Donald Trump because we need change in this country, and I believe he represents the kind of strong leadership at home and overseas that will, to borrow a phrase, 'make America great again'".

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump delivers a speech in Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S. July 11, 2016.

Trump started his speech with saying he thought Pence was doing a good job as governor, and thanking IN for being the primary election making Trump the presumptive nominee. "We're winning too much'". "Who the hell knows", Trump told the rally.

In a change in plans, Trump later made a decision to spend the night in Indianapolis "because it was logistically easier" to go straight from there to California, a campaign aide confirmed to CNN.

Although Pence endorsed Ted Cruz for president in the primary season, the first-term in governor is considered one of Trump's top-tier choices among vice presidential prospects.

He served five terms as a congressman from the Hoosier State, where he distinguished himself as a budget-cutter and a hard-core social conservative before succeeding Mitch Daniels as governor of IN in a tight election (he won with less than 50 percent of the vote IN 2012). "No one needs an extra hassle".

"We're going to bring our manufacturing back", Trump said. "We were very moved by how gracious and kind they were to our family. Good? I think so", Trump said.

Tuesday night's appearance is the latest in a series Trump has done with people who are believed to be vice presidential contenders, including former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen.

ABC News has confirmed that both Christie is being vetted, and Pence associates have been told he's under consideration for the job, a Republican source told ABC News. We'll see what happens over the next two to three days.

Some donors are pressuring Trump to pick Gingrich.

For his part, Trump asked for the crowd's opinion. Trump is expected to his running mate this week.
