Thoughts on Mike PenceBy
When asked, Pence has never wavered in his response. He says he is prayerfully considering his options with his family and appreciates all the feedback he is currently getting here at home and all around the country.
But the announcement we are all anxiously anticipating within the next week may not answer all of the questions. There is speculation that Congressman Pence may announce that he is not running for president but not directly address a possible gubernatorial bid.
New state law that forbids fundraising during a budget session of the Indiana legislature may have a hand in that, although no one seems to know for sure how that law applies to a potential run for governor by a sitting congressman.
Obviously the only one who truly knows is the Congressman. Hopefully we will all know the answers to both questions within the next week.
Gov. Mitch Daniels has already announced that he will not make any announcement about his political future until after the current legislative session. He may not be the only one.
