{VOA News Online} – Indiana Governor Mike Pence, a conservative stalwart picked by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to be his vice presidential running mate, is set to make the case Wednesday why they should be elected as the next American leaders.

Pence, a long-time congressman from the midwestern state and later its chief executive, has been linking Trump this week at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, to the heritage of a favorite Republican icon, Ronald Reagan, who served two terms as the U.S. president in the 1980s.

Pence, 57, is making the headline speech on the third day of the four-day quadrennial convention, a day after convention delegates formally nominated Trump and him to face Democrat Hillary Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state, and her yet-to-be-named running mate in the November national election.
