The Republic ^

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Mike Pence is coming back to Indiana to fight Washington, D.C.

Pence launched his campaign for governor Saturday with a promise to fight health care reform and federal climate change legislation.

Pence also said in prepared remarks that he is running to build on many of the changes set by term-limited Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Pence is vacating his congressional seat to run for governor.

While he has yet to outline any specific proposals, Pence sounded a lot in his campaign kickoff like he has for the last ten years in Washington.

Pence is expected to face Fishers businessman Jim Wallace in the Republican primary next May.

In that case, I’m all for global warming. Call me pro global warming and anything I can do to speed it up, I’ll do... : )

I’m a Bartholomew County native, although I don’t live there now. Having grown up there, I wouldn’t say its’ a liberal area by any stretch. Its’ always been pretty reliably Republican, which I know isn’t always synonymous with conservative, but still. A Democrat isn’t going to win that seat. Not a chance.

I’m another lifelong Bartholomew County native, still here in fact. Agreed, I don’t think the natives are liberals, but the transplants, they certainly are.

Hey, numb nut Texan, this Hoosier is not waiting for a check in the mail. Do you know anything about Indiana, or are you just basing your thoughts on Indianapolis, Bloomington and Gary? Have you ever lived here?

You wanna rethink that comment after learning he voted for the debt ceiling? He lost my vote.

Why should I rethink my comment? Anyone with a shred of realism knew the debt ceiling would be raised, no surprises there.

What I find interesting is that the hard core commies in the House voted AGAINST the bill.

While I don’t like it, it is very hard to be on the same side as Jan Scankowski and sorts like that.

Yeah, everyone knew it was going to be raised, but someone like him should’ve stood on his principles. If we keep up the momentum, we’re one or two election cycles away from either completely taking over or destroying the Republican party, so his cowtowing to the leadership is just a sign of weakness.

Have you ever considered that he DID stand by his principles?
Sometimes principles can conflict and one must go. It doesn’t mean one has rejected his principles. But there are priorities.
