Pence: 'I'm going to take Hoosier ideals to Washington'

(link to post)

Gov. Mike Pence returned to Indiana Saturday evening after attending a campaign event in New York earlier that day alongside Donald Trump, who welcomed Pence to the presumptive Republican ticket at their first joint appearance since Pence withdrew from his re-election bid.

In brief remarks outside Indianapolis, Pence thanked members of his family and asked his supporters to pray for them as they entered the general election.

“I want to pay a debt of gratitutde to those who made this moment possible,” Pence said at the outset of his comments before thanking his wife, Karen, their children and his parents.

Pence said he would “cherish” the rally welcoming him back to the Hoosier State from New York, where he formally accepted an invitation to become Trump’s running mate after the presumptive GOP nominee announced it on Twitter early Friday.

“I’m going to take Hoosier ideals to Washington, D.C.,” Pence said.
