At least it's not Christie or Gingrich. They're both so disgusting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donald Trump has selected Indiana Gov. Mike Pence to be his running mate--he is expected to formally call Pence Thursday afternoon, reports CBS News' Major Garrett, citing a GOP official close to the process.

The addition of Pence to the ticket may help assuage concerns among conservatives worried that Trump is too moderate on social issues. It also takes Pence out of a tough reelection fight in the Hoosier State against Democrat John Gregg, whom Pence beat narrowly in 2012. Polls taken this spring showed Pence's lead within the margin of error.

Pence was born into a family of Irish Catholic Democrats in 1959. He became a born-again evangelical Christian after meeting his future wife, Karen, at a protestant church during college.

Before becoming governor, Pence served in the House of Representatives for six terms where he was known as a staunch conservative, opposing both President George W. Bush's expansion of Medicare and the bank bailouts of 2008.

Dear ********,

According to several breaking media reports, Donald Trump is poised to announce the selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate tomorrow, doubling down on the hateful and bigoted rhetoric that won him the Republican nomination.1

Like Trump, Pence has a long record of trying to turn Americans against each other. As the governor of Indiana, he advanced legislation that legalized discrimination against the LGBTQ community, tried to keep nonprofit organizations in his state from helping to resettle Syrian refugee families fleeing terrorism, and signed one of the most regressive laws in the country to take away women's access to reproductive health care.2,3,4

Rather than choosing someone who could help unite this country, Donald Trump is gearing up to select someone who has built his political career around pitting his state’s communities against each other. And a CBS-New York Times poll released today shows that Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton are TIED.5 We need to go all in to defeat Trump and Mike Pence—or whomever Trump ultimately confirms as his running mate.


Trump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, xenophobia, violence, and hate—and his apparent decision to double down on that shameful legacy by choosing someone as divisive and hateful as Mike Pence is, while unsurprising, very dangerous.

I don't know the guy but I will say that no one is more divisive than Progressives.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
