The Indianapolis Star is reporting that governor Mike Pence is "dropping his re-election bid in Indiana to become Donald Trump's running mate.
The New York Times is slightly more cautious with the news, saying "Trump's campaign has signaled strongly to Republicans in Washington that he will pick Mike Pence, the governor of Indiana, as his running mate, though Republicans caution the party’s mercurial presidential candidate may still backtrack on his apparent choice."
Whether Pence or someone else, a formal announcement of Trump's choice is expected at 11:00AM Friday morning.
I will be making the announcement of my Vice Presidential pick on Friday at 11am in Manhattan. Details to follow.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2016
