ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Mike Pence said Presidential candidate Donald Trump "is still standing tall," after the the news media and Democrats have been trying to 'do him in," as he reminded supporters in Colorado that the next President will likely make several appointments to the Supreme Court. In Denver, Colorado Pence said, "They keep telling each other, they keep saying 'Now we got him,' they think the usual methods will work against him, they keep thinking they have done him in and then you get up the next morning and Donald Trump is still standing tall, and fighting for the American people." "You know we are going to choose a President for the next four years, but that president is going to set the direction of the Supreme Court of the United States for the next 40 years," he said. Donald Trump's White House campaign was in turmoil on Wednesday after he angered senior Republican Party leaders by criticizing a dead soldier's family and refusing to back the re-election campaign of House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan. On Tuesday, Trump denied both Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain support in their coming primary contests, hitting back at critics in the Republican leadership who have taken him to task for his insistent public dispute with the parents of the soldier, a Muslim U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war. Pence, said on Wednesday he endorsed Ryan as "a strong conservative leader," and was doing so with Trump's blessing.
