WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan and Donald Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, have joined together in a sign of Republican unity.

They appeared at a rally Saturday in Wisconsin’s most conservative county — a month after Ryan said he would no longer defend or campaign with Trump.

Both Pence and Ryan said it’s time for Republicans to “come home” and vote for Trump. Pence heaped praise on Ryan, calling him a friend and great conservative leader.

Just days earlier, Pence refused to say whether he thought Ryan should be re-elected as speaker.
