CLEVELAND – U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, believes presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is off to a good start this convention week with his running mate choice, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
“Remember, Mike Pence was in Washington when (the September 11 terrorist attacks) happened,” Davis said. “He hopes devise from of the policies that are in place right now to track terrorist behavior.”
Davis said he hopes the convention creates a more unified Republican party.
“I hope we are able to come out of his convention knowing our nominee will be able to put together a team – hopefully in the same sense of Abraham Lincoln – he will put together a team of rivals.
U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk and Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner are skipping the convention. Kirk has called Donald Trump “too bigoted and racist” for the job. Trump called Kirk a “loser.” Rauner is also sitting the convention saying he will be meeting with constituents.
