Vice presidential candidate Mike Pence visited Tucson today. He is Donald Trump's running mate and the Governor of Indiana.
Gov. Pence spoke to a crowd estimated at more than a thousand people at the Fox Theater downtown.
"You have nominated a man who never quits, who never backs down.  He's a fighter.  He's a winner and up until very recently, it seems like he was doing it out there all on his own. But now we are united.  We have all come together and we are going to make Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States and we will make America great again."
He was trying to make the case that electing Hillary Clinton will basically be an extension of Barack Obama's presidency and the crowd here wants to stop that from happening.
The current Indiana governor addressed President Obama's charge that Donald Trump lacked the judgement to be President by saying Obama and Clinton's judgment wasted gains in stabilizing Iraq and set the stage for the rise of ISIS.
Gov. Pence says Trump understands what America's economy needs and what working people need to prosper, and he summed up most of his case in his closing.
If you want a President who will protect this nation, confront radical Islamic terrorism and rid the world of ISIS, if you want a President who will restore law and order to this country and voice law enforcement the support and resources they need and deserve, if you want a President who will cut taxes, grow our economy, repeal Obamacare and squeeze every nickel out of that bloated federal bureaucracy, if you want a President who will upend the status quo in Washington DC and appoints justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, then I submit to you we have but one choice; that man is ready. This team is ready.  Our movement is ready so let's leave here today determined to not rest and not relent until we make Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States of America and we'll make America great again.
Gov. Pence took questions on topics that ranged from support for Israel, support for small businesses, crime rates and getting The federal government out of regulating education.
Now he moves on to Phoenix for a rally there.
