Do you know Who is LMike Pence?

Michael Richard Pence was born on June 7, 1959, in Columbus, Indiana, USA. He is a lawyer and politician best known as the current and 48th Vice-President of the United States, a position he has held since January 2017. Before that, he was the 50th Governor of Indiana and a member of the United States House of Representatives. He planned to run for governor again before being nominated as Donald Trump’s vice-presidential running mate in the 2016 election.

Early Life

Mike attended Columbus North High School before enrolling at Hanover College to study history. He graduated in 1981 and went on to study for a JD at Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law. He briefly worked as an admissions counselor at the college after graduating. He became interested in politics after being inspired by people like John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., but along the way he converted to Christianity and shifted his political views to the right, attributing his identification with former President Ronald Reagan.


After completing his law degree, he went on to pursue a career in private practice before running unsuccessfully for a congressional seat in 1988 and 1990. He then became president of the Indiana Policy Review Foundation for two years before going on to host his radio show, “The Mike Pence Show,” which was broadcast on WRCR-FM. He also hosted a political talk show from Indianapolis on weekends.

Pence would remain out of the political spotlight for many years before deciding to resurrect his political career by running for the United States House of Representatives in 2000, where he would win Indiana’s 2nd congressional district, replacing David M. McIntosh, who ran for governor. He opposed George W. Bush’s programs such as No Child Left Behind and Medicare prescription drug expansion, and he was easily re-elected four more times. In 2005, he was appointed chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of conservative House Republicans. This would prompt him to run for Republican Party leader, but he would be defeated by John Boehner.
In 2011, he sought the Republican nomination to run for governor of Indiana in 2012, where he faced off against John R. Gregg and Rupert Boneham in a close race. During his tenure as governor, the economy was initially hampered by sluggish manufacturing sectors and budget cuts. He eventually signed legislation prohibiting local governments from requiring businesses to provide higher wages or benefits than those mandated by federal law. Mike Pence also proposed a tax cut of 10% on income taxes, which would be the largest in state history.

He also supported increased education funding while opposing the Common Core State Standards Initiative and recruiting the National Rifle Association to train the Indiana National Guard on concealed carry. Mike endorsed Senator Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, but would later be considered as Donald Trump’s vice-presidential running mate. Despite numerous controversies, he would support many of Trump’s statements and stand by the presidential nominee. When Trump was elected, he became Vice President, and he was inaugurated in January 2017. He has had many ceremonial duties as Vice President, and as President of the Senate, he became the first Vice President to cast a tie-breaking vote to confirm a cabinet member.

Net Worth

As of early 2018, sources estimate his net worth to be $2 million, earned primarily through a successful political career. He was responsible for Indiana’s largest tax cut and signed numerous notable bills. It is expected that his wealth will increase as he advances in his career.

Relationship Status

Mike Pence married Karen Batten in 1985, after meeting at Indiana University while he was studying law. The couple has three children together, as well as four pets. One of their sons is a pilot in the United States Marine Corps. Mike was born into a Catholic family but converted to Christianity while in college. Despite this, he attended mass and worked as a Catholic youth minister. He and his family later became members of the Grace Evangelical Church. He identifies with the historic Christian Church and considers himself Catholic. Throughout his political career, he has defended his faith in numerous statements and responses to questions.
