Kansas delegates see Trump’s VP helping with GOP skeptics

KSAL StaffJuly 15, 2016

Kansas delegates to the GOP National Convention say Donald Trump’s decision to pick Indiana’s governor as his running mate will help him with Republicans who remain wary of him.

State Treasurer Ron Estes said Friday that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is a good choice because Pence is a former congressman and is seen as having a strong economic record in his state.

Estes said there’s a “general, positive vibe” about Pence. Estes is a delegate for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Prominent Trump supporter and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said picking Pence should help Trump with conservative evangelicals and establishment Republicans.

And 1st Congressional District GOP Chairman Randy Duncan noted that Pence previously backed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, so the pick is a signal to Cruz backers.
