Mike Pence-“TRUMP-PENCE: The Ticket: Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and the 2016 Election”
Indiana Governor Mike Pence isa a social cinservative with congressional experience but also a history of generating controversy over policies. He went to washington as an outsider, learning first hand about the “Beltway Culture” that has stained American politics for so many years. He later returned to Indiana and has been governor since 2013. He was named Republican nominee Donald J. Trump’s vice presidental running mate in July 2016.
Pence’s office champions his record of tax cuts, especially for businesses, as well as his work to push for smaller government. Late last year he ordered state agencies to suspend funding for groups that help agencies to suspend funding for groups that help refugees in Indiana, saying the measure would be in place until he got assurances that proper security procedures were in place. He was one of several state leaders who at that time tired to deter the settlement of Syrian refugees following terror attacks in paris. A federal judge struck down the order in March.
