Nobody Is 100% Sure If Donald Trump Has Picked Mike Pence As His Running Mate

Trump is On the Pence

Posted on July 14, 2016, at 1:31 p.m. ET

On Thursday, Roll Call was the first to report that Donald Trump was set to pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as Vice President.

Chaos ensued.


There were "signals."

There were also "sources."

JUST IN: @realDonaldTrump to name @GovPenceIN as his running mate, source says

Breaking: Source says Donald Trump has told senior Republicans Mike Pence is his choice for vice president. Story soon.

IndyStar joined the confirmation parade too, without any named sources.

IndyStar has confirmed, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will be Donald Trump's VP pick.

Trump was "leaning toward" Pence.

Buzz appeared to be centering on Pence.

Buzz is centering on Ind. Gov. Mike Pence as Trump's VP pic. 5 things to know about Pence:

Trump and his maybe-maybe-not VP Pence were also confirmed to do a joint interview on 60 Minutes.


Or maybe he was just going to do it with whoever he picked?

A source w/ knowledge confirms to me that Trump and his VP pick are expected to sit down with Lesley Stahl tomorrow for Sunday's @60Minutes.

And just when you thought OK, fine, Pence it is, Trump's communications adviser said Trump had not yet made a decision.

1/2 A decision has not been made by Mr. Trump. He will be making a decision in the future…

"A decision will be made in the near future," Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign chairman said.

Re: @realDonaldTrump VP selection, a decision will be made in the near future and the announcement will be tomorrow at 11am in New York.

So after all that, it seems like Pence is Trump's running mate, but no one is really totally sure if Pence is Trump's running mate right now.

It did all make some for great puns, though:

I'm guessing the ticket will be nicknamed Tuppence? #Trump2016

The most "Pencive" Trump'll ever be. . .
