ZIONSVILLE, Ind, July 16, 2016/
Governor Mike Pence returned home to Indiana on Saturday night after a two-day trip to New York City in which Donald Trump announced him as his vice presidential running mate.
Governor Mike Pence flew in on a gray, private jet and briefly addressed the welcome-home crowd around 400 supporters, including NRI Sikh community leaders at the Indianapolis Executive Airport in Zionsville.
"I look across this crowd, I see friends of so many years — people who carried my little family on their shoulders," Pence said. "I'm here to announce that today I accepted Donald Trump's invitation to run and serve as vice president of the United States of America. My fellow Hoosiers, I'm here to announce that today in New York City, I accepted Donald Trump's invitation to run and serve as Vice President of the United States of America."
"Mike Pence has very close relations with Sikh Community of Indiana and Governor also signed three very important bills to law related to Fuel/Oil industry which had direct positive impact on Sikh Business owners who are related to this industry," Gurinder Singh Khalsa said. " When the governor inaugurated the Sikh Parade, he showed that Sikhs are a valued part of Indiana and are proud Hoosiers, themselves.
"Let's make Indiana the first state on the board to make Donald Trump the 45th president of the United States and send another Hoosier to the vice president's office," Pence said.
