Donald Trump on Friday announced that Mike Pence would be his running mate in the 2016 presidential election.

Pence is the current governor of Indiana, and Agri-Pulse reports that agriculture industry leaders in that state think he would aid agriculture in the role of vice president. Pence "is truly agriculture's dream candidate," said Don Villwock, formerly president of the Indiana Farm Bureau. 

With the Republican vice presidential candidate selected, the attention now turns to the Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, who continues to vet candidates. One much discussed possibililty for the Clinton campaign: USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack.
