Mike Pence’s speech at the Convention on July 21, 2016, was a solid performance. My take from this speech is that Governor Pence is the perfect foil for Donald Trump. They are two totally different characters; their individual perspectives coming from different colors of the spectrum to provide a single white light and a balance for the Republican Party that most members should accept.
Governor Pence’s diplomacy and political experience will be most useful as a foil to Mr. Trump’s unpolitical, frank, but often abrasive, rhetoric.
According to his bio, Governor Pence was elected the 50th Governor of the State of Indiana in 2012 and inaugurated January 14, 2013. Since taking office, he has achieved the largest state tax cut in Indiana history while also lowering business personal property tax and corporate income tax. If he can help to implement changes like this on a nationwide scale wouldn’t this be great!
