Governor Mike Pence (Indiana)One conservative activist thinks Indiana Governor Mike Pence would be an excellent running mate for Donald Trump.

Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Joni Ernst of Iowa recently took themselves out of contention as possible running mates with the Republican presidential nominee. So now, some analysts believe the leading contenders are former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Indiana Governor Mike Pence.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families says there are several good reasons to go with the latter.

"The battleground is going to be in the Midwest. Governor Pence helps on that count," he submits.

And Bauer points out that the election will depend on whether various parts of the Republican coalition come out to the polls.

"One big part of that coalition are values voters," the conservative recognizes. "I think that the Pence family's strong faith and his record in Congress as being pro-life and pro-family will help bring up the values voter vote for Trump by several percentage points, making it more likely that states like Ohio and Pennsylvania can be won."

While there are a number of good choices for vice president, Bauer believes Pence deserves careful consideration by the Trump campaign.
