WASHINGTON (AP) -

House Speaker Paul Ryan says Donald Trump should pick a conservative as his vice presidential nominee -- "to assure conservatives that conservative principles are adhered to and maintained."

Ryan didn't offer a specific suggestion during an hour-long appearance on CNN Tuesday night billed as a "town hall."

But Ryan, who was the GOP's vice presidential nominee in 2012, says the pick should be "someone who is going to advance conservative principles and has a proven track record of doing that."

Ryan's emphasis on conservative credentials underscores many Republicans' discomfort with Trump's own spotty conservative bona fides.

Ryan, who hesitated for weeks before endorsing Trump, acknowledges that Trump is "new to this and he's been on different sides of different ideas."

The Republican convention begins next week and Trump is expected to unveil his vice presidential pick soon.
