TRUMP, PENCE STEP INTO THE SPOTLIGHT TOGETHER
Donald Trump formally unveiled Mike Pence as his running mate Saturday, candidly saying he hoped the pick would unite the fractured Republican Party, in a typically unconventional rollout event that was more about the man at the top of the ticket than his new sidekick.The presumptive Republican nominee introduced the Indiana governor at a Manhattan hotel two days before the start of the Republican National Convention. It was a spectacle that underscored the odd couple nature of the GOP ticket, that now unites Trump, a brash, volatile outsider with a sparse ideological track record, with Pence, a strait-laced, disciplined warrior of the social conservative movement."He's really got the skills of a highly talented executive," Trump said, adding, "Mike Pence is a man of honor character and honestly. We know that. Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of corruption."
