As Pence VP speculation grows, Trump rally reportedly planned Tuesday in central Indiana
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is expected to hold a rally Tuesday in central Indiana, our newsgathering partners at the IndyStar report.
Rex Early, chairman of Trump’s Indiana campaign, told the Star the rally is expected to begin at 7:30 p.m. A location has not yet been announced.
This comes as Indiana Gov. Mike Pence continues to be mentioned as a potential vice president.
Pence has until noon on Friday, July 15, to remove his name from the gubernatorial ballot. He’d have to do that because state law prohibits him from running for governor and vice president. Trump will reportedly name his running mate by July 15.
Early told the Star he didn’t know if Pence would be at the Trump rally Tuesday, but expected he would be.
Trump will be in Chicago earlier in the day and arrive in Indy later in the afternoon for a fundraiser.
Others reportedly under consideration for the VP post include former House speaker Newt Gingrich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
