INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- The vice presidential buzz continues this holiday weekend.

Gov. Mike Pence is back in Indiana after a whirlwind meeting with presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

The governor and First Lady Karen Pence attended Symphony on the Prairie Sunday evening where reporters caught up with the two before the show and asked them how the meeting went.

Pence and Trump met Saturday at Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.

Pence says they played a round of golf, spent personal time together and talked about Trump’s plans for the future of the nation if elected president of the United States.

Pence is being called a top tier choice as Trump's running mate in the race for the White House. No matter what the future holds, Pence says Trump is the leader the nation needs right now.

“Donald Trump will provide the kind of leadership that will strengthen our nation, restore our prosperity and provide the kind of appointments to the Supreme Court that we’ll be pleased to support," said Pence.

Pence says nothing was offered and nothing was accepted and right now, he is running for reelection.

If the governor is selected and he accepts, Indiana law says Pence will have to drop out of the race for governor.

He would have until July 14 to remove his name from the ballot. Meantime Trump will be in Indianapolis for a private fundraiser on July 12.

On Monday, Trump tweeted about his meeting with Pence:
