Mike Pence has been a radio host, an attorney, a lawmaker and a governor. Longtime journalist, public radio host and Franklin College journalism professor John Krull, has watched Pence’s career for years. He says Pence lost twice before being elected to the House of Representatives for 12 years.
“In the year 2000, he stepped in, and by then, the district had been pretty safely gerrymandered so that it was easy for him to win the congressional seat and he stayed there for twelve years . . . till he was elected governor of Indiana.”
