Senate Dem: Trump will pick ‘handsome’ Pence

Greg Nash
Democratic senator says Trump “cares more about the appearance.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) predicted early Thursday that Donald Trump will pick Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate because the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is mostly concerned about “looks.”
“Donald Trump cares more about how people look than the substance,” McCaskill said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” basing her prediction on “how Pence looks.”
{mosads}”[Trump] cares more about the appearance, on his polling and on his magazine covers and how beautiful his wife is,” said McCaskill, who said it was “terrific” that Trump’s wife, Melania, a former model, was beautiful.
“I think he will pick Pence because he looks like somebody who would hang out with Donald Trump: He’s handsome and cuts a smart figure, but he isn’t going to overshadow Trump,” she said.
McCaskill, a backer of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, argued that two other top Republican vice presidential prospects, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), “could be capable of overshadowing” Trump. 
Trump and his family met privately with Pence at the governor’s home in Indiana on Wednesday, part of the final frenzy of meetings with potential vice presidential picks ahead of a scheduled announcement Friday.
