(AP) -

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has officially accepted Donald Trump's offer to join him on the Republican presidential ticket.

Pence says at an announcement event on Saturday in New York that Trump "is a great man and he will make a great president of the United States of America."

He says he was "honored" to accept the offer to join the ticket, because the country needs "strong Republican leadership" and because presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton can never be president.
