ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Shortly after Republican Donald Trump announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate on Friday (July 15), Pence arrived at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan to meet with the presumptive candidate for U.S. president. He told reporters, "I am very humbled, very grateful." Republican sources said on Thursday that Trump had decided on Pence, but the campaign had not confirmed this until Friday. Trump had postponed a Friday event to announce his decision following the deadly truck attack in France. Pence was peppered with questions from journalists as he arrived at Trump Tower. He told journalist that the last 24 hours have been "very exciting." Viewed as a safe pair of hands, Pence, 57, has diverging views with Trump on his proposed Muslim ban and trade, and is more socially conservative. But he could help unify Republicans left divided by Trump's campaign to win the party presidential nomination for the Nov. 8 election.
