(Associated Press)

On Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention, Indiana Governor Mike Pence kicked off his speech with a phrase he’s repeated many times over the years: “I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.” Donald Trump’s running mate was also self-deprecating.

Morning Shift talks to WBEZ Northwest Indiana reporter Michael Puente from the floor of the Republican National Convention about the man that could be the next Vice President of the United States, Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
