Vice President Michael R. Pence

Michael R. Pence was born in Columbus, Indiana, on June 7, 1959 – one of six children born to Edward and Nancy Pence. Sitting at the feet of his mother and his father, who started a successful convenience store business in their small Indiana town, he was raised to believe in the importance of hard work, faith, and family.

Vice President Pence attended Hanover College, earning his bachelor’s degree in history in 1981. While there, he renewed his Christian faith which remains the driving force in his life. He later attended Indiana University School of Law and met the love of his life, Second Lady Karen Pence.

After graduating, Vice President Pence practiced law, led the Indiana Policy Review Foundation, and began hosting The Mike Pence Show, a syndicated talk radio show and a weekly television public affairs program in Indiana. Along the way he became the proud father to three children, Michael, Charlotte, and Audrey.

The people of East-Central Indiana elected Vice President Pence six times to represent them in Congress, in which he served as Chairman of the House Republican Study Committee and House Republican Conference Chairman.

In 2013, Vice President Pence left the nation’s capital when Hoosiers elected him the 50th Governor of Indiana.

It was Indiana’s success story, Vice President Pence’s record of legislative and executive experience, and his strong family values that prompted President Donald Trump to select Mike Pence as his running mate in July 2016. The American people elected President Donald Trump and Vice President Pence on November 8, 2016 and they assumed office on January 20, 2017.
