"In light of the frightful attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow's news conference concerning my Vice Presidential announcement", Trump tweeted late Thursday. "But I understand that the way that some on the left, and frankly some in the national media, have mischaracterized this law over the last week might make it necessary for us to clarify the law through legislation".

Gingrich says that Donald Trump's impending vice presidential decision ultimately comes down to whether he wants a fellow "pirate" or a "relatively stable, more normal person".

"The Pences enjoyed spending warm, productive time with the Trumps", said Pence spokesman Marc Lotter in a statement the following day.

In choosing Pence - instead of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie - Trump found someone described as a reliably staunch conservative given to bragging that he was a tea partyer before the Tea Party was cool.

"It's down to three", the younger Trump told MSNBC. He will be making a decision in the future...

He said in a Fox News interview: 'We will announce tomorrow when it will be'.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has reportedly selected Indiana Gov.

Trump tapped Pence to be his running mate on Thursday, according to multiple media reports, as he tried to spark enthusiasm among evangelical Republicans who have so far been skeptical of the free-wheeling real estate mogul's campaign. "He'll be an exceptional asset as Mr. Trump's running mate, he'll help unify the party as we take the battle to the Democrats in the fall up and down the ballot". "3 great choices. Decision is my father's alone to make!"

"His campaign has said that it will unveil a running mate for Mr. Trump in NY on Friday".

U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks is pursuing support for the Republican nomination for IN governor if Gov. Mike Pence becomes Donald Trump's running mate.

"It's no secret I'm a big fan of Mike Pence's", said House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc.

At his residence Thursday morning in McLean, Virginia, Gingrich dodged reporters' questions about whether he would be Trump's running mate, saying, "I don't answer questions at my house".

Mike Pence has been one of the most successful IN politicians IN recent years, but his career started with a couple of early setbacks. While Trump has largely avoided taking a stance on gay-rights issues, Pence was widely criticized for supporting a strict religious-freedom bill that would have allowed business owners to discriminate against L.G.B.T.Q. customers.

Rumors of Mitch Daniels possibly running for Indiana Governor are put to rest.

The Times said Pence emerged as the strong favorite over recent days.

Newt Gingrich says he is hosting a "Facebook Live" event Thursday afternoon to discuss the Republican "vice presidential picks and the VP selection process".

Trump's decision to postpone Friday's planned vice presidential announcement because of the deadly attack in Nice, France, causes some in complications because Pence faces a noon Friday deadline to withdraw his name as a gubernatorial candidate.

The New York businessman has also said he might come up with a little-known surprise pick. He told CNN he was expecting to hear about Trump's decision around 1 or 2 p.m.
