Pence Ends Possible White House Run; Leaves Wiggle Room
According to the Indianapolis Star, Mike Pence is not running for President in 2012. The Star reports that Pence has chosen to serve Indiana, as Pence put it, "in some way."
Quizzically, Pence didn't just announce that he wasn't running for President, and that he was going to run for Governor. There's some wiggle room left there. Pence told the Star he will make a decision about his next step "sometime later this year"
Pence isn't losing any time in fundraising. I heard this morning on channel 13 that new state ethics rules prevent Pence from raising cash for a statewide run until after the General Assembly ends its long session. That should be sometime in April, if all goes well.
