US media report that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has chosen the Indiana governor as his running mate. The choice suggests Trump might be trying to mend bridges with the more moderate wing of his party.

US media outlets reported the decision on Thursday, less than a week before the Republican National Convention, where the brash billionaire is expected to become the party's official nominee.

The businessman and former reality TV star was slated to officially announce his choice on Friday morning, but said he would postpone the announcement in the wake of a truck attack in Nice, France that killed over 70 people.

Generally viewed as a conventional choice for Trump, who was also reportedly considering such controversial figures as former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrinch and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Pence is likely to appeal to evangelical Christians, who have doubts about the notoriously divisive New Yorker.

Should Pence run alongside Trump, he would not be able to contest what appears likely to be a difficult re-election bid in Indiana.
