Pence cuts ribbon at only Trump office in his home state

CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — Mike Pence made a stop near Indianapolis to open the only Donald Trump presidential campaign office in the Indiana governor’s home state.

The office in a suburban strip mall was sweltering after an overflow crowd packed into the small space Friday afternoon.

Most polls show Democrat Hillary Clinton leading the race, but Pence vowed the Republican ticket would be elected in November to “make America great again.”

The campaign now has three paid staffers in the state. But party officials say they have an army of volunteers and also are operating out of the Indiana Republican Party headquarters.

Pence told the crowd that he never expected to be a vice presidential candidate. But he says he and wife Karen knew what their answer would be if asked.
