WASHINGTON (AP) — Many limited-government conservatives may be skeptical of Donald Trump, but his running mate wants them to know the Republican presidential nominee will be their advocate.

The Indiana governor addressed the American Legislative Exchange Council in Indianapolis on Friday, vouching for the “importance” Trump “would place on empowering states.”

He told the national gathering of business interests and conservative state lawmakers that “the states created the federal government, the federal government didn’t create the states.”

He also evoked former President Ronald Reagan and quoted from a Robert Frost poem, telling the group that bold conservative leadership required them to take “the road less traveled.”
