Pence: Trump ‘Reminds Me of Ronald Reagan’

‘Ronald Reagan achieved great things if his life and his career, a movie star, a celebrity, governor of the great state of California, but he never lost the common touch, did he?’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
" I honestly believe, I honestly believe in the collective wisdom of the American people and the capacity of the people of our nation to know who we need, who the right person is at the right time for America. It happened in 1980 when Ronald Reagan was chosen that we had a man like our nominee this year, although he achieved great heights in his own career, never lost touch with everyday Americans. To be around our nominee, as I had the privilege to be, not only the campaign trail, but out among his associates, people that he’s employed for years, and among his family. I had a sense of this man. I have a sense of his heart, I have a sense of his hands on style of leadership, and for all the world, he reminds me of Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan achieved great things if his life and his career, a movie star, a celebrity, governor of the great state of California, but he never lost the common touch, did he?"
