Cleveland, July 21: India Governor Mike Pence formally accepted the Republican Vice Presidential nomition at the 2016 Republican tiol Convention on Wednesday night. Pence took the stage at Quicken Loans Are in Cleveland as the fil speaker of the day in an effort to build excitement for the Trump-Pence ticket, Xinhua news agency reported. “I accept your nomition to run and serve as vice president of the US,” Pence said. His speech was regarded by many as an introduction to the voter base still largely unknown outside his home state. In contrast to the out-spoken Republican presidential nominee Dold Trump, Pence is calm and has extensive experience working in Capitol Hill. Trump reportedly picked him as running mate to appease the Republican establishment and social conservatives in the increasingly divided party. He made the choice under pressure from political consultants, advisors and family, in an effort to bridge the gap between his campaign and many party figures who were unwilling to support him.
