Dollars and Pence: Is the Indiana Governor Donald Trump's Pick for VP?
The suspense as to who will be Donald Trump’s running mate is beginning to look like The Apprentice: Veep Edition.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee has narrowed down his vice president choices to Indiana Governor Mike Pence, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, according to reports.
On Wednesday, Trump and his oldest children raised speculation that Pence is the frontrunner after a meeting at the governor’s mansion in the Hoosier State.
At a rally the night before, Trump said of the state’s governor: “You're gonna call him ... and you're gonna say governor — or vice president — we're winning too much!"
Sources claim Trump's children are pushing their father to pick Pence, while the billionaire is leaning towards Christie.
Reports say that right after meeting with Pence in Indiana, Trump got on the phone with Gingrich.
On Tuesday, Fox News Channel where Gingrich is an on-air pundit, suspended ties with him amid speculation he could be Trump’s V.P. pick.
Jay Wallace, the network's executive vice president for news, said in a statement: “Due to the intense media speculation about Gingrich's potential selection as Donald Trump's vice presidential candidate, we felt it best to halt his contributor role on the network to avoid all conflicts of interest that may arise.”
On Tuesday afternoon, Gingrich said on Fox News: “It's a little bit like The Apprentice. You find out sooner or later who is the last one standing,"
