INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Indiana Governor Mike Pence has thrown his support behind presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Governor Pence said that companies, like Carrier, leaving Indiana are a result of Washington policies.

He thinks Trump is the best person to grow our economy.

“I’m fully supportive of our presumptive nominee, and I do think Donald Trump will do well in the State of Indiana,” Gov. Pence said. “I’m going to campaign hard for the Republican nominee because Indiana needs a partner in the White House.”

But not all on the Republican side are on board.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he can’t support Trump, at least not yet.

“I'm just not ready to do that at this point, I'm not there right now,” Speaker Ryan told CNN. “I hope to though, and I want to, but I think what is required is that we unify this party. I think the bulk of the burden on unifying the party will have to come from our presumptive nominee."

The Washington Post reports that Speaker Ryan and Trump are meeting next week.
