Festooned with Donald Trump‘s name and his “Make America Great Again” motto, the awnings at the three-story commercial property advertise a famous tenant.

After frenzied, final decision-making, Donald Trump announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate Friday, adding an experienced politician with deep Washington connections to the Republican presidential ticket.
