WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement regarding presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s decision to name Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN) as his running mate for the 2016 presidential campaign:

“Governor Mike Pence is an exceptional leader, and an even better man. As chairman of the House Republican Conference during a critical time for our country, he played a key role in helping us earn the majority in the House.  And with his heart, honesty, and integrity, he won the trust and respect of everyone with whom he served.  I’ll always be grateful for his friendship; his loyalty to the team and the cause during his years in the House; and the relationship we continued to have after the people of Indiana chose him as their Governor.  I congratulate Mike, Karen and their family.”
