“I’ve known Mike Pence for 15 years, and I know him to be a man of great character and devotion to principle,” said Senator Pat Toomey. “He’s a very strong choice for Vice President.”
The two presumably met in the U.S. House of Representatives when Pence was first sworn in 2001. The Indiana Governor served as a Congressman from 2001 to 2013 while Toomey served from 1999 to 2005.
It is quite possible that Pence, rather than Trump, will campaign with Sen. Toomey this fall.
