Mike Pence Addresses Ticket Rumors

A rare Republican congressional conference call this morning, as lawmakers decide whether they’re on board with Donald Trump.

FOX’s Jared Halpern has more from New York:

The conference call hosted by Republican Congressional leaders was scheduled before last night’s debate as more than two dozen GOP members either unendorsed Donald Trump or urged the nominee to step aside and let his running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence take the reins:

(Pence) “I’m happy to talk to any of my friends in leadership, but honestly, this election is really in the hands of the American people.”

Pence says rumors he was considering dropping from the ticket are totally false and believes Trump showed humility and strength in last night’s debate.
