Mike Pence Speaking at the Detroit Economic Club
November 29, 2010 2 Comments
Congressman Mike Pence is speaking at the Detroit Economic Club this afternoon. The Indy Star says the speech is likely to focus on “Pence’s ‘vision for economic growth, prosperity and job creation’”.
Indiana’s Legislative Insight noted that this is a normal speaking engagement for presidential hopefuls and that Pence will look “to prove his national economic bona fides.”
We’ll be watching this speech closely. We maintain that Congressman Pence is running for Governor but has generally focused his message on a conservative social agenda and national issues.
Governor of Indiana is a job that requires a firm grasp on economic issues and more than talking points on balanced budgets and lowering spending. The Congressman has yet to really focus on these issues so far. This speech is a perfect opportunity to keep national pundits talking while moving his messaging in a direction more suitable for a bid for Governor.
