As Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick, Indiana Governor Mike Pence brings to the ticket some political baggage that the Hillary Clinton campaign was quick too pounce on today.
‘Think Donald Trump is divisive?’ asks a new video. ‘Meet his running mate, Mike Pence. As governor, Pence was willing to shut down Indiana’s economy to allow discrimination against LGBT people.’

But after a national backlash, he quickly ‘fixed’ the law but significant economic damage had been done to the state in the form of boycotts.
