SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Now, there has been mixed reaction, and I want to go through this slowly, because this is very important. This now, is front and center. There are two issues that drive elections, and by the way Mike Pence, now officially on the ticket with Donald Trump. Donald Trump tweeting out today he'll have a joint announcement with Governor Mike Pence of Indiana tomorrow.

Before that, though, Governor Mike Pence will be sitting down with me, tonight, 10 eastern on the Fox News channel for his first interview since his announcement that he'll be on the ticket. I understand the two will be doing 60 Minutes on Sunday night with Lesley Stahl, so, hopefully set your DVR for tonight, 10 eastern.

I've done a lot of research on Mike Pence, I've got a lot of things -- I like this pick. And I was quoted as saying I wouldn't be happy, there's so much I forgot about Mike Pence. You know Mike Pence was the first congressman to ever speak at a Tea Party rally? You know Mike Pence, I had forgotten this too, he challenged John Boehner and the Republican, the weak Republican establishment on spending, and literally challenged Boehner to be Speaker of the House? I mean, he's got some fascinating things to -- I'll share with you in the course of the program today.

Obviously we have a lot of focus on terror, we'll talk about -- I know the media's gonna hone in on quote “the differences” between the two, Trump and Pence, there's very few actually when you look at it. Maybe more stylistic differences than anything else.
