Who knew Mike Pence ? The 57 year old Indiana governor and one time radio talk show host accepted the GOP nomination for VP and in the process delivered a crafted and well delivered speech giving the nation its first look at him and its first articulation of the Donald Trump candidacy.
Decrying Hillary Clinton as "secretary of the status quo," Governor Pence delivered the goods and showed he is a force in adancing the Trump candidacy.
Earlier in the evening, Senator Ted Cruz delivered a self serving but well delivered screed advancing his 2020 ambitions while refusing to endorse Mr. Trump. Much of the hall booed.
All eyes will fall on Mr. Trump Thursday night as he accepts the nomination for President and theTrump-Pence ticket is off and running as Democrats ready their pageant in Philadelphia.
