VP Watch: Newt to Stump with Trump in Ohio

Newt Gingrich, who is among the finalists to become Donald Trump’s running mate, will join the presumptive nominee at his rally Wednesday afternoon in Cincinnati, Ohio, according to two sources.

One person involved with the planning of Wednesday’s event — and who is close to the vice presidential vetting process — characterized the joint appearance as a “trial balloon” to gauge media coverage of the pair as a potential GOP ticket.

Gingrich, the former House speaker and 2012 presidential candidate, is considered part of Trump’s inner circle and has been a fierce defender of the real estate mogul’s polarizing candidacy.
