Despite Trump's Muslim Ban, Pence Would Vote for the Republican

Governor Mike Pence was pretty explicit in his condemnation of Donald Trump's proposal to prevent all Muslims from entering the US, as were other Republican leaders. (Pence is apparently content to have them immigrate to the US, so long as they don't think they're going to live in Indiana!) However strong his objections are to Trump's unconstitutional ideas about a religious test for immigration, those concerns don't seem to trump his party loyalty. As reported in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, when asked if he would vote for Trump for president if he is the nominee, Pence responded, "I will be voting for the Republican nominee for president of the United States."
