Mike Pence: “I’m a Christian, a Conservative and a Republican. In That Order”

Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence last night gave Americans a very clear picture of who he is and has been as a pro-life governor and Congressman and who he would be as a leader of the country.

“I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican,” Pence said. “In that order.”

Pence would later explain in his address: “For those of you who don’t know me, which is most of you, I grew up on the front row of the American dream. My grandfather immigrated to this country, and I was raised in a small town in Southern Indiana in a big family with a cornfield in the backyard. Although we weren’t really a political family, the heroes of my youth were President John F. Kennedy and the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

Pence understood well the biggest issue at stake for pro-life voters — whether another four decades of abortion are yet to come.

“As this election approaches, every American should know that while we’re filling the presidency for the next four years, this election will define the Supreme Court for the next 40,” he added. “”For the sake of the sanctity of life… We must ensure the next president is Donald Trump.”

Pence was also quick yo point out the contrast with Hillary Clinton, who supports unlimited abortions at taxpayer expense.

“This won’t be America’s first glimpse of the Clinton machine in action, as Bernie Sanders can tell you. And this time around, she’ll have the press doing half her work for her. The good news is, it won’t be nearly enough — not against a candidate who has captured the attention of this country the way Donald Trump has,” he said. . . .Read More
