ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Indiana Governor Mike Pence met with Donald Trump on Wednesday heightening speculation that Pence could emerge as the Republican presidential candidate's choice for vice presidential running mate. Speaking to reporters during a visit to the Three Rivers Festival in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Pence said that he was "humbled" to be considered for the post of Trump's running mate in the 2016 presidential election. "There's a number of other noteworthy Americans that they're considering, and I'm just honored to be on that list,' he said. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee and Pence had campaigned together at a rally on Tuesday night in Westfield, Indiana. Trump was joined at the governor's residence for breakfast in Indianapolis by his daughter, Ivanka; son-in-law Jared Kushner; and sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. "Nothing was offered, nothing was accepted," at the meeting, Pence said, "but we had a great conversation about the country." Trump is expected to announce his choice on Friday. Republicans close to the campaign have said they believed the New York businessman had narrowed his short list to Pence, former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
