A Social Conservative that endorsed Ted Cruz, and signed the Religious Freedom Bill into Law last year.
Basically Trump is trying to make a harder right hand turn to appease the evangelical base, and cower to the Psychotically far right Republican Platform. Apparently capturing the middle and bringing new people to the party is no longer an objective

Looks like the official announcement will be postponed due to the terrorist attack in Nice.

Apparently Gov. Pence saw his chances of get re-elected as governor of Indiana were dropping by the day, and he saw this might be a graceful exit. I have no idea what he brings to the table. Having signed the Right to Work, and Freedom of Religious Freedom bills, I can't see the undecided voters rushing to jump on Trumps bandwagon.

Like Trump, Pence is tone deaf and uninterested in learning what he doesn’t know. He’s an ideologue who surrounds himself with people who tell him what he wants to hear. His bubble is so airtight that differing opinions often come as a complete shock to him.

Pence swears he’s all about small government. But he signed one of the most restrictive anti-abortion laws in the nation, requiring women who have an abortion or a miscarriage to have a funeral for the fetus.

He also tried to start a state-run, taxpayer-funded “news” service to compete with local news outlets. “Just IN” is what his staff called it. Everyone else called it “Pravda on the Plains.”

It’s the kind of thinking that should pair nicely with Trump’s tendency to throw temper tantrums and revoke media credentials.

Interesting that Trump has halfheartedly tried multiple times to make a play for the LGBT vote, but then aligns himself with someone who does things like this:

Sadly, due to the terrible trust issues with HRC and Trump playing up his anti-(illegal) Immigrant, anti-Islamic, views, his views on trade (That I agree in part on), he could win barely especially in key states. Pence adds anti-GLTBQ, anti-Labor, anti-government worker, anti-abortion, anti-public worker record, so get the votes of hard core, tea party R's and leaning independents.

Hep, it's all about Donald
NEW YORK -- At a news conference to introduce his newly announced running mate to his supporters, Donald Trump took the stage alone Saturday morning and then spent 28 minutes talking about all sorts of things with only brief mentions of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

Apparently the liberal left doesn't really have a lot on Pence. On one of my Facebook food blog links all the radical left wingers in New York could do was harp on a post he made of his family having lunch at Chillis.

That is how bottom of the barrel the democrats are.

You should expand your reading circle...by a lot. Pence critics have plenty to crow about:
- Indiana is at the epicenter of the opioid epidemic in this country
- Southern Indiana has a recent HIV epidemic that's overwhelming its rural health infrastructure
- NW Indiana has some of the highest crime in the country
- Indiana's highway infrastructure makes Michigan's look good
- Mike Pence apparently complained that Mulan was part of the liberal conspiracy with regards to women in the military
- Mike Pence voted for the War in Iraq...which is fine except Donald Trump has been hounding Hillary Clinton for the same vote--his explanation? Mike Pence can make a mistake every once in a while and "it was a long time ago." Apparently time counts differently based on the party letter next to your name. Yes that's more a Donald Trump issue than a Mike Pence issue...but by standing up next to Donald Trump he absorbs a lot of Trump's problems.
- Liberals will have a field day with Mike Pence record on what are perceived as women's issues and LBGT issues. And they will crow even more that it was the typically Republican leaning big business that made Mike Pence do an about-face on a deceptively-named religion freedom bill -- aka no backbone

Unrelated to the "dirt" on Pence, is that his selection as VP places a lot of limitations on fundraising as he's a sitting governor.

The way I understand the rules is if Mav11 called you that derogatory name, you would have a legitimate gripe. How can that be inappropriate about a politician? They are the Masters of insults, derogatory comments. You have a Master of insult, and derogatory comments seeking the Nomination in Cleveland for the GOP right now. :o

So this is the same Mike Pence who tanked his state's economy and then focused on a pro-discrimination bill thinly veiled as religious freedom?

One and the same. I did not hear one word about Right to work, womans rights, abortion, sexual descrimination. I guess that will be covered later, much later.

Personally, what I find most disgusting about Mike Pence is that he will always put politics above any rational, scientific, practical, common sense, or proven, methods that go against his "faith" in bulls**t. This clown denied smoking caused cancer, death, and health problems until the 21st century and even fought against raising the cigarette tax just a couple of years ago. He refused to pay pennies on the dollar for a needle exchange program, while then having to spend millions on HIV+ healthcare for opioid addicts in nearly 100% white counties of his state, including Scott county. (A sh*th*le right next to Kentucky.) This douche bag is a tool of the highest order. Is it any wonder in a red, red, red, state that Mike Pence was running neck and neck with a Democrat? Why else do you think he took this gig with the Ooompa Loompa Trump?
