WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump has offered Indiana Gov. Mike Pence the vice presidential spot on the Republican ticket — and Trump’s announcementis set for Saturday at 11 a.m.

That word comes from a Republican with direct knowledge of the selection process. The Republican wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the details of Trump’s search for a running mate and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Republican says Trump made the offer on Thursday afternoon, before Pence traveled later in the day to New York.

Trump delayed his plans for a vice presidential announcement Thursday night after the truck attack in France.

Pence withdrew from Indiana governor’s race on Friday morning, minutes after Trump announced via Twitter that he selected him as his running mate.
