INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Gov. Mike Pence says the Republican presidential campaign might lift its ban of certain media outlets from campaign events.
Pence said Friday that the campaign would evaluate its policy and added that events would be "available to the media, whether they're fair or unfair."
The governor's remarks on the Hugh Hewitt radio show came days after a Washington Post reporter was searched and ejected from one of his events.

Donald Trump has been a frequent critic of the media and has banned several outlets from covering his campaign events, including Buzzfeed, Politico, The Huffington Post and The Washington Post.
Pence touted his own record of being available to the media to Hewitt.

However, Pence faced immediate criticism when he considered launching a state-run news service 'Just IN' in January 2015. Days later, he scrapped the effort.
