Update: On Friday via one simple tweet, Donald Trump confirmed Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is his vice presidential running mate.
Earlier: Though the Trump team hasn't confirmed yet, rumors are circulating that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has chosen his vice president, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. While the official announcement won't come until Friday, the news has sparked a frenzy of inquiries into the family-oriented state official. Like Trump's brood, Pence's wife and children have been heavily involved in his political career, doing everything from helping out on the campaign trail to connecting with the community at local events. Even the governor's youngest daughter remains a prominent supporter of her dad despite her differing political views. You can see that in photos of Audrey Pence supporting her father's political career.
While Gov. Pence is a registered member of the Republican Party with a slew of conservative opinions, Audrey has previously described herself as "politically independent, socially liberal." Pence's youngest told WTHR she'd opted to vote split ticket in the 2012 election, her first time casting a ballot.
Despite holding political opinions at odds with her father's, Audrey has stressed her governor dad is nothing but proud. "Probably the person I get the most respect from is my dad on that and he ... tells me so many times, 'I am proud of you for having your own opinions and looking into things,'" Audrey told WTHR. Gov. Pence even accompanied Audrey to the polls in 2012 to celebrate her first time voting.
Audrey, now 21, remains close with her father, often accompanying him to sporting events or hanging out around town. Gov. Pence appears to be a big #ThrowbackThursday fan. The Indiana governor often posts adorable old family photos to his social media accounts in celebration of his wife and children.
The youngest Pence daughter regularly spends Memorial Day weekend attending the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway with her family. According to tweets from Audrey's mom, the auto race is a family tradition for Indiana's first family.
