"Because we need Mike Pence as vice president and because we need those Supreme Court nominees, those are just two of the reasons I support Donald Trump as president," said U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-CD5, introducing Indiana Gov. and Republican nominee for vice president Mike Pence to the stage Wednesday in Colorado Springs.
"I'm just grateful to be joined by Jeanie's husband," Pence said jokingly after taking the podium to the sound of Free's "All Right Now" pumping through the speakers at high volume. "One of the strongest, most unapologetic conservatives on Capitol Hill, Congressman Doug Lamborn. ... I can say I was with Doug Lamborn before it was cool."
Continuing into a string of polished stump speech lines, Pence said, “We will let the American people decide their future” during his 27 minute address in the Antlers Hotel ballroom that was packed with about 400 vocal supporters who got what they hoped to receive from Pence, reinforcement of core conservative values and a strong discussion on policy that underscores, if not slightly softens, Donald Trump’s outspoken rhetoric.
