Skip to comments.Mike Pence to Decide Next Month on President, Governor Bid
Posted on 12/20/2010 6:05:50 PM PST by pissant
Congressman Mike Pence of Indiana excites social and fiscal conservatives alike and will reportedly decide next month whether he will run for president or governor of his home state.
Pence energizes pro-life advocates with his consistent pro-life push including his drumbeat for revoking taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Although members of Congress dont normally rise to national prominence and just one has ever ascended to the presidency, Pence is defying the odds by building a solid national reputation that has him as one of the potential dark horse candidates who could vie for support against the main names currently dominating most of the discussion on the Republican side.
Republican Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman, who is pro-life, announced today that health concerns will keep her from making a bid for the governors position and a source close to Pence told Politico that may be moving the congressman in the direction of mounting a 2012 gubernatorial bid.

I hope he runs for governor. If he runs for POTUS now, he’s liable to wreck his future chances. He’s a good man, but he needs more experience and more exposure.
President. He’ll get the exposure, if he runs, and he’s been in office for 9 years. That’s enough experience. We need him at the national level.
Pense is ok, but my pic for 2012 is Palin.
Pence says he’s tired of fighting in the lame duck session and just wants to go home. Adios gelding.

What is wrong with Mike?
You said PIC and PIC you shall receive!
he would do more good for the country and Indiana as Senator Pence. He would beat Lugar like a rented mule.
Agree, Governor. He also needs to learn how to make decisions with insufficient information rather than criticize with 20/20 hindsight.
I hope that’s his decision, but why give Lugar notice?
I’m thinking he’s either going to run for governor or give the GOP nomination a shot.
Almost no one goes from Congress to President. He needs to run for Governor.
Experience in what? It’s all about leadership. Experience is what you hire a staff for.
LOL! That was a great episode. I loved seeing all the doggies.
His plan might be to enter the Republican primaries to gain national exposure for another run four or eight years later. Few win the nomination during their first run, and it seems even harder for a member of he House who are less known than senators and governors.
sounds very similar to
Lawyer, community organizer, senator, president.
Mayor of small town, 1/2 term governor, celebrity.......I’ll pass.
Me too, and Piper was thrilled to pick the puppy to be named after her!
