Wouldn't This Be Cool For Me!!!!

Pence eyed as McCain's running mate

In Friday's Columbus (IN) Republic Newspaper

U.S. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., said he was humbled to read Friday in a Wall
Street Journal opinion column that he would make a good running mate for
presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Politicians on the state and local levels said the 48-year-old Pence would be a good fit on the ticket, and it would be exciting if the GOP vice presidential candidate hailed from Columbus.

The last Hoosier to hold that level of power in the White House was Dan Quayle, the former U.S. House and Senate member who served as vice president under George H.W. Bush. He was one of five Hoosiers to serve as vice president.

Pat Toomey, a former Republican congressman from Pennsylvania, wrote that McCain is the party's likely nomination for president, even though his policies have been at odds with conservative Republicans.

McCain would be wise to name a fiscal conservative as his running mate to unite Republicans, said Toomey, president of Club for Growth, a political action committee that raises money for Republicans who support a lower-tax, limited-government agenda.

Pence is the Indiana 6th District Congressman where I live. The picture above is Rep. Pence and I at the Capital during the Veterans for Freedom event this past September.
