Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump will name Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate on Friday, Roll Call news site reported, a choice that would help the New York businessman appeal to conservatives and could boost his chances in a competitive state.

Roll Call on Thursday cited an unidentified Republican with direct knowledge of the decision to choose Pence, 57, a former U.S. congressman. Reuters has not confirmed the report.
