Views

1||January 19, 2011: Rep. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) ambitions beyond Congress are well known. In November, Pence stepped down from his position in the House Republican leadership, leaving some wondering if he planned to run for governor of Indiana, or even president. He also won the Values Voter straw poll for both president and vice president in September. The Indianapolis Star reports that Pence will decide on a presidential bid this month.
