Pence's recent decisions to take a harder line on food stamp recipients and to stand up to that horrible federal government and spurn the feds hand on Pre-K funding clinched it for me. Pence's stunt on the tarmac at the Evansville airport was another clue, and his constant trotting out of his conservative credentials also are excellent indicators.
Using his position as one of the leaders of the Republican Governor's Association, Pence is campaigning in New Hampshire on behalf of the GOP's lost cause candidate there. Pence has also been to Iowa as well as recently as last month.
He's running for President. I don't know if he'll survive the long Primary season, but it's really time for the Democrats to get their act together for 2016 on who will be the challenger. Now would be the time to drive home some points about Pence abandoning Indiana and looking for higher office opportunities.
The sad reality is that Indiana is just a pawn in Pence's larger political puzzle now. We don't have a Governor anymore. We have a Governor that's running for President. Let the crazy begin!
