Donald Trump’s campaign has apparently alerted top GOP officials of his decision on which candidate he was picking as his vice presidential running mate. According to a breaking story from New York Times, Donald Trump will pick Mike Pence to run on his ticket.
Washington’s bigwig Republicans have received word from the Trump campaign, according to three legitimate sources unable to speak publicly. Trump is set to make his announcement in Manhattan on Friday.

According to The Times, Pence is:
“A low-key man largely defined in public life by his Christian faith, Mr. Pence, 57, is seen as a cautious choice of running mate — a political partner who is unlikely to embarrass Mr. Trump, and who may help him shore up support among conservative voters still wary of his candidacy.”
“His staunch conservative views on certain social issues, like gay rights and abortion, may inject a new set of concerns into the general election debate that have been largely overlooked with Mr. Trump at the top of the Republican ticket.”
