Mike Pence 2016 Dark Horse?



I can think of worse candidates for president in 2016 than Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Matt Lewis thinks he could be the dark horse in the race.

He’s more charismatic than Scott Walker, more conservative than Chris Christie and, unlike so many of the top-tier 2016 Republicans, he has actually run a state.

So why isn’t Indiana Gov. Mike Pence generating the kind of buzz worthy of a top-tier candidate?

Probably because while his opponents have been show horses, he’s been a work horse. And that makes him a dark horse.

Read the whole thing. Pence has quite a few things going for him. He knows how things work in Washington, DC, but he isn’t there now. He’s gained executive experience as governor of Indiana. He’s charismatic and well liked by conservatives but doesn’t turn off large segments of the voting public. He has also been a fierce opponent of Obamacare, and managed to win his state a waiver from the rotten law. Like I said, I can think of worse candidates. (Christie, cough, cough!)
