INDIANAPOLIS (April 3, 2016) - It's just one month until Indiana's primary, and this year, our state's votes will actually matter in this year's drawn-out Presidential primary process.

But will Gov. Mike Pence make an endorsement in the GOP primary?

In the video above, IndyStar reporter Tony Cook discusses that possibility, and Pence's reaction to Donald Trump's controversial remarks on abortion.

So would Pence endorse someone like Ted Cruz to try and stop Trump's momentum? It's still too early to say for sure.

This past week, Wisconsin's governor endorsed Cruz, a move that seems to be paying off for Cruz, who now leads the polls in that state.

Cruz's campaign seems to be actively courting Pence's endorsement. While Pence has not formally endorsed anyone, he has said he will support the eventual Republican nominee.

Cruz supporters are sending encouragement his way.

“Mike Pence’s endorsement would be very important. He’s well respected, he has a tremendous presence in Indiana, he’s been a public figure in Indiana for a long time and he’s still a young guy,” said Cruz campaign surrogate, Congressman Steve King (R – Iowa).

John Kasich and Donald Trump have not yet opened offices in Indiana.

If you would like to vote in the May 3 primary, you have until Monday, April 4 to register to do so. You can register online, by mail or in person at your local voter registration office.
