RedState Radio: Rep. Mike Pence, Conservative
By Erick Posted in Podcasts — Comments (66) / Email this page » / Leave a comment »
Make no mistake about it, Mike Pence is Mr. Conservative in the U.S. House. While John Shadegg (R-AZ) ran for Majority Leader as the conservative in the race, Mike Pence has led the Republican Study Committee, which is the organization in the U.S. House wherein you find the conservatives and conservative legislation (Mike Pence succeeded Rep. Shadegg as Chairman of the RSC).
In recent months, Rep. Pence has drawn a lot of attention and some criticism for his immigration plan -- a plan that combines free market approaches to immigration and a demand to seal the border and keep it sealed (for the record, I support the Pence Plan).
Congressman Pence, a true friend of RedState, was very gracious with his time. We talked about his immigration plan, earmarks reform, legislation he submitted after the jailing of two reporters in the Barry Bonds case, and his possible Presidential run in 2008.
