Donald Trump’s running mate will be Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Trump confirmed over Twitter Friday morning.

Pence brings social conservative cred to a Trump campaign that has lacked it. But he has disagreed with Trump on two of Trump’s major policy proposals. He has also sworn off the type of negative campaigning that is Trump’s hallmark.
