Veep prospect Mike Pence to appear with Donald Trump

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Donald Trump is to appear with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence at a fundraiser next week.

Pence is considered a leading candidate to be Trump’s running mate, and he’s listed as a host of Tuesday’s Indianapolis event on an invitation obtained by The Associated Press. A Pence spokesman confirmed the governor’s plans to attend the private fundraiser. Tickets range from $2,700 per person to $250,000 per couple.

An appearance by Pence would be the latest in a series of apparent auditions for Trump’s vice presidential prospects.

Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich both appeared at rallies with Trump this week. Corker has since withdrawn his name from consideration.

And New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is also being vetted for the post, was set to appear with Trump in Miami on Friday before the event was canceled because of the mass shooting in Dallas. Trump is expected to name his choice in the coming days.
