Pence Spends Morning in New York with Trump


U.S. Rep. Mike Pence is consulting "The Donald'' as he kicks his run for governor of Indiana into gear.

Pence spent Tuesday morning in New York meeting with Donald Trump. At one point both men considered running for the Republican presidential nomination but both opted out. Pence is running instead for governor.

A Pence spokesman did not say what the two talked about and said Pence is deeply committed to Republicans running in Indiana's 2011 elections across the state Tuesday.

Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker said Pence should have spent Election Day campaigning for Hoosiers rather than meeting with Trump.

Pence has touted his work for local candidates in the 2011 campaign as he works to connect with Hoosiers statewide after spending the last decade representing the 6th District in Washington.
