Donald Trump, in his first significant decision as GOP presumptive nominee, officially announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. For Trump it is a good political decision. Pence, with a decade experience as a congressman, understands the workings of congress, something Trump actually has little if any knowledge of. Pence's executive experience as governor with be helpful as Trump has little executive experience other than reality show host and marketing the Trump brand. Pence, a born again Christian is sure to lock in the Evangelical base for Trump. Finally, Pence, a respected conservative will be helpful in calming the jitters of many conservatives that have expressed concern over Trump's unorthodox campaign antics. A real grand slam for Trump one could say.
