Asa Hutchinson to join other governors in meeting with Donald Trump

Donald Trump has set a meeting in New York today with several Republican governors, including Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas. They are from mostly red-meat GOP states like Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Maybe he's vetting veeps. Or maybe he just wants to share his 70th birthday cake. He said later it was lovely. A "broad range of issues" discussed. They may not agree on everything, Hutchinson said, but they did agree "on the importance of this election." Uh huh. The governor's full statement:
