Congressman Pence describes himself as "a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order!" An outspoken advocate for the values we share, he has been named one of the 20 most influential conservatives in America and has repeatedly received the "True Blue Award" from the Family Research Council for his commitment to the family and sanctity of human life. Human Events named Congressman Pence "Man of the Year" in 2005. If you have not heard Congressman Pence speak you are in for a real treat!
