'95 percent' chance Pence will be Trump's VP

"Very impressed, great people!"

Several Republicans close to the campaign and to the governor have told The Times over the last 24 hours that they are now convinced it'll be Mr. Pence.

Other rumored possibilities to take the spot as Trump's running mate include New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

The Hill writes that buzz is building on Capitol Hill for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence to be Trump's running mate. The rally is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m.at Grand Park Events Center.

An email seeking comment from Trump's campaign wasn't' immediately returned Monday. You can watch the rally live on WISHTV.com Tuesday evening.

Karolyi makes right choice with Gabby Douglas
At Sunday's trials, Douglas performed well on vault - winning sixth place - and also ended up tying for sixth on floor exercise. Some commentators think she's in even better shape than she was in 2012. "I guess I'm just glad I'm not competing anymore".

The governor also said Friday that flags should be flown at half-staff at IN facilities statewide, continuing until sunset on Tuesday, and asked businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff to honor the service and sacrifice of the five slain law enforcement officers. Trump will hold a rally and fundraiser in IN on Tuesday, where Pence will join him.

The Trump-Pence fundraiser already was a big deal, with tickets are going from $2,700 to $250,000.

We're exactly a week out from the Republican convention in Cleveland, which means that Donald Trump's vice-presidential pick could come any day now. (A reminder: Pence can't both run for re-election this year, as well as run for VP.) But some caution here: It's one thing for this news to be the hubbub in IN, yet that might not reflect what's in Trump's head. If he accepts the VP nod, the state Republican committee will choose a new gubernatorial candidate to run against John Gregg in November.

It will be remembered that Pence offered a personal expression of support for Ted Cruz during the primaries, but he quickly - less than a week later - endorsed Trump, and we can be certain the reality star will be willing to overlook something so "trivial" for a guy who is willing to say "yes".
