Clinton Campaign Wastes No Time Going After Trump’s New Running Mate (VIDEO)

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was quick to go after Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) once Trump announced Friday morning that Pence would be his running mate.

After a week of false starts and speculation regarding Trump’s choice of vice presidential candidate, it only took fifteen minutes for the Clinton campaign to tweet a video highlighting Pence’s political record.

“Think Donald is divisive?” the video asks. “Meet his running mate.”

The video makes note of the “religious liberty” bill that Pence signed to protect Indiana business owners from being required to serve same-sex couples if they objected because of their religious beliefs. The law was widely criticized as setting “a terrible precedent” and was later clarified to bar business owners from using it as a defense for discrimination.

The video also highlighted Pence’s push to defund Planned Parenthood.
