    NEW YORK CITY, New York — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, the 2016 GOP vice presidential nominee, told Breitbart News exclusively on Monday evening that it’s time for Hillary Rodham Clinton—the Democratic nominee for president—to “come clean” with Americans and “shut down the Clinton Foundation.” Pence said via phone from his airplane after an event in the battleground state of Iowa, his first interview with Breitbart News Network since becoming the GOP vice presidential selection this year: It’s time for Hillary Clinton to come clean and level with the American people about the State Department and foreign donors to the Clinton...
  • Mike Pence Laughs When Fox Reporter Repeats Trump’s Promise to Win Black Votes

    In one segment of a pre-taped interview with Fox’s Ainsley Earhardt aired Monday morning, Republican Veep candidate Mike Pence couldn’t help but chuckle with she repeated Trump’s promise to win basically the entire African-American vote. “He says that by 2020 he’s going to have 95% of the African-American support,” Earhardt said, compelling Pence to laugh. “Why are you laughing?” “Well, that’s Donald Trump,” Pence said, adding that his running mate was a “truth teller.” Trump’s strategy for minority outreach has come under scrutiny. He has been criticized for both his message (“What have you got to lose?”) and the fact...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) said Sunday that Donald Trump has helped draw attention to recovery efforts after the recent devastating floods in his state. In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," the governor downplayed critical remarks he made before the Republican presidential nominee visited his state. "I didn't dismiss his trip as a photo-op. Before he came down, I said we welcome him here, we want him to be helpful," Edwards said. "And we hope that it doesn't turn into a mere photo-op." Edwards said Trump's visit to the state was positive for Louisiana. "Because it...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” while commenting on whether or not Clinton Foundation donors got preferential treatment from Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Republican vice-presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN) called for investigation into any potential pay-to-play arrangements. Partial transcript as follows: WALLACE: Do you have any evidence that she actually took action as a result of these big donations? And when you say, the American people have a right to know, do you think there should be an investigation, a federal investigation? PENCE: Well, certainly, there are officials at the FBI.

    Republican vice-presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence on Sunday suggested a federal investigation into whether Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as secretary of state, provided political favors to foreign donors to her family’s Clinton Foundation, saying “the American people have a right to know.” The Indiana governor argued that emails made public last week suggested such a connection between State Department officials and major foreign donors to the foundation but acknowledged that Clinton’s involvement remains unclear. “It looks that way more and more every day,” Pence said. “That's what we need to find out. … This is exactly the kind of...

    Jewish Daily Forward ^ | August 8, 2016 | Drew Gerber
    In a way, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been true to his word that his “terror ban” is not just about keeping Muslims out of the country. He’s looking to keep out Christians and Jews, too. The campaign’s proposal to temporarily ban immigration from countries “compromised” by terrorism is about the lack of a proper vetting system for these immigrants, not their religion, said Trump’s running mate Gov. Mike Pence said in an interview Monday on The Charlie Sykes Show, a Wisconsin radio talk-show. When asked by Sykes whether the temporary ban on Muslim immigration, which Trump originally proposed...

In multiple emails, DNC officials signed off on and acknowledged the existence of two anti-Donald Trump protests in South Bend, IN and Billings, Montana. Democrats always plot, plan and finance so-called “grassroots” protests on the left. On Tuesday Catherine Byrne infiltrated the Mike Pence rally in Carson City, Nevada.

    Despite the rocky start to the Democratic National Convention, bookies are making the Hillary-Kaine ticket the odds-on favorite over the Trump-Pence ticket. But the smart money may be as wrong about the U.S. presidential election as it was about Britain’s referendum on the European Union, in which the bookies gave the Remain camp an 82 percent chance of victory. Mike Pence is a favorite among evangelicals and other conservatives, and he can do Trump a world of good in turning out the Republican base on Election Day. Still, when Trump approached Pence about becoming his running mate, the Indiana governor...

    Most pundits consider Tim Kaine a safe, if boring, vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton. For those who truly understand the frontrunner, Kaine is an apt pick. Like Mike Pence, he is not exceptionally attention-grabbing. Neither of them has to be. The two top dogs in the race already have all the deep-throated growl they need. Kaine has been operating in the political arena for over 22 years. He has an all too familiar "insider" résumé that tracks his career moves through various levels of state, party, and federal government. He is being touted by Democrats as someone who...

Indiana earned a triple-A credit rating in 2010 and has maintained it ever since. These strategies help put the state in a...

Sources I interviewed said the poll was conducted by the Harper Polling Firm for the U.S. Senate campaign of GOP State Rep. Dan Carter. The as-yet published poll shows Trump tied with Clinton — each with 43 percent — in heavily Democratic Connecticut.
