CLEVELAND - Several delegates and party leaders say a vice presidential choice like Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is a smart move that could cement Donald Trump's support among the Conservative base of the Republican Party. 

Former Michigan Republican Party Chair Betsy DeVos isn't yet sure. She tells FOX 17 that she's listening to what goes on at the convention and hopes to hear "the kinds of things Republicans have embraced and continue to embrace.  We have to be the party of big ideas and big ideas that are solutions for people."

DeVos is at the convention as an at-large delegate and was a John Kasich supporter in the primaries.  She also says that while she may not be embracing Trump at this time, she won't be embracing Hillary Clinton.
