Pence must feel somewhat threatened by the former Indiana Speaker of the House's attacks because he has trotted out high-level surrogates to fire barbs back at Gregg.
Jim Shella pens this piece for WISH-TV. In it, Shella describes some of the campaign tactics that Gregg is using. Gregg is employing a different strategy, and it appears that it's working. With millions of dollars in Washington money pouring into Indiana to support his campaign, Pence has been on television for a few weeks with a few different ads.
As Shella points out, Pence's camp is saying that Gregg is being a bit misleading with its attacks. When Pence himself has built his entire career, however, on championing wedge issues, how could what Gregg charges be misleading?
On the Pence Plan website, this video is posted. Is John Gregg being misleading? That sure sounds like Mike Pence's voice.
Pence is not a moderate. He's a right wing, Tea Party Republican who cannot separate his Evangelical Christian religion from his duty as a policy maker and office holder. It's amazing how the Mike Pence Campaign is trying to sell us this working man from a working family who just wants to do good by Indiana. That certainly isn't the Mike Pence we've come to know.
