Indiana Governor Mike Pence is Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick.
U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE) says the former member of Congress and first-term governor is a good choice.
“He is looked upon as a very solid man. He has a reputation of being a good governor for his state. I think he would be a very good addition to our ticket,” Fischer told reporters on her weekly conference call.
Trump was expected to name his running mate Friday, but delayed the announcement after the deadly incident in Nice, France. Instead, he made a statement via Twitter Friday morning.
Fischer says she has never met Pence, but has been at different events at the same time.
“I will say that I think the people that I’ve heard are on the short list that Mr. Trump is looking at will all bring strength to the ticket,” Fischer added.
Along with Pence, other contenders for Trump’s running mate were New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
