2012 Candidate profiles

(Continued)

For many years, Joe ran a small printing shop in Mishawaka, so he understands the challenges of balancing a budget, making payroll, and hiring workers.

He served on the Indiana State Election Board from 1988-89, allowing him to work with members of both parties to ensure fair and accurate election results. Joe served on the school board for Marian High School from 1997-2001 and as president during the 2000-01 term. In this position, he gained insight and experience in managing and finding solutions to the problems that our education system faces.

In 2006, Joe was elected to U.S. Congress to represent Indiana’s 2nd District. He is currently serving his third term after being re-elected in 2008 and ‘10. He is a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, which promotes a moderate agenda focused on fiscal discipline and strong national security. Joe serves on two committees that help meet the diverse needs of north central Indiana: Financial Services and Veterans’ Affairs.

Joe decided to run for U.S. Senate because he thinks Hoosier men and women deserve a senator who is focused on what matters most: finding and keeping a good job so they can take care of their families and retire with dignity.

Pence

“A lifelong Hoosier from Columbus, I believe in promoting economic freedom, encouraging hard work, ensuring our schools work for all Hoosier children, and respecting the values that make Indiana great. I am running for governor because I love this state and because I have a vision for the future of Indiana.

“Our campaign is about making Indiana the state that works for all Hoosiers. Where we promote private sector job growth, develop world-class schools, protect taxpayers and support Hoosier families. Where we create new products, develop new industries, find new cures, and send our Hoosier products from factory, farm, and lab, to every part of the world. Where Hoosiers are entrepreneurs and engineers, innovators and technicians, dreamers, builders, and creators. Where we believe in the future and always look forward.
