ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate, Saturday (July 16). "What a difference between Crooked Hillary Clinton and Mike Pence," Trump said. "I accept your invitation to run and serve as Vice President of the United States of America," Pence said to a cheering crowd. Some conservatives who had fought against Trump's ascendancy in the Republican nominating race welcomed his announcement that he had picked Pence, a well-known social and evangelical conservative. The Club for Growth, a conservative economic group, had sharply criticized Trump's support for protectionist trade policies. On Friday, the group noted that as a member of the House of Representatives, Pence had been a strong voice for "free markets and economic liberty" at a time when the Republican leadership had been weak on these issues.
