RNC 2016: Pence likens Trump to Reagan

CLEVELAND — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is comparing Donald Trump to his “political hero,” the late President Ronald Reagan.

Pence, Trump’s newly-named running mate, spoke this afternoon to a luncheon held by the American Conservative Union Foundation.

Pence said that Trump, like Reagan, “never lost touch with everyday Americans” despite big career achievements.

The Indiana governor, long a favorite of conservatives, was making his first appearance as since Trump named him to the ticket.

Pence deemed the presumptive nominee “a good man” who will be a great president because “his heart beats with” the American people.

Trump will officially become the party’s nominee tonight at the Republican National Convention.
