INDIANAPOLIS — The Latest on the U.S. presidential race (all times EDT):
Mike Pence says evidence is forthcoming that will help his running mate, Donald Trump, refute allegations by several women of sexual assault.
Pence told Fox News on Friday that “the campaign is working on bringing that out.”
Pence also complained that the media unfairly focused on the sexual assault allegations instead of newly released hacked emails apparently from Hillary Clinton’s campaign. He said emails from Clinton advisers show “religious bigotry.”
He was referring to an exchange in which one aide suggested that being Catholic is a more “socially acceptable” conservative religion than being evangelical.
Pence, an evangelical, said Clinton should denounce “these kinds of demeaning statements.”
