    Indiana Gov. Mike Pence compared Donald Trump to his "political hero," the late President Ronald Reagan. 

    Pence, Trump's newly-named running mate, spoke Tuesday afternoon to a luncheon held by the American Conservative Union Foundation. 

    Pence said that Trump, like Reagan, "never lost touch with everyday Americans" despite big career achievements.

    The Indiana governor, long a favorite of conservatives, was making his first appearance as since Trump named him to the ticket.
