(FOX NEWS) – Donald Trump announced Friday that he has chosen Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate.

He made the announcement on Twitter.

Trump had originally planned to roll out his pick at a news conference in New York on Friday, but postponed the event because of the terror attack in Nice, France. Per his tweet, that event will take place Saturday morning.

The Pence pick follows a very-public vetting process that included meetings in recent days with Pence, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, among others. While the initial postponement of Trump’s announcement fueled speculation that he might be having second thoughts, it was widely expected that Pence was in line for the job.

The selection of Pence, who went from dark horse to leading contender in a matter of days, presumably is aimed at galvanizing support from the party’s conservative base as Trump charges into the Republican nominating convention.
