Bill Would Let Mike Pence Run for Governor and President in 2016
Indiana voters could find something unusual on the ballot in 2016 under a measure state lawmakers will consider next year. Gov. Mike Pence's name could appear twice, once for governor and once for president of the United States.
A lot of "ifs" stand in the way of that happening -- including Pence ultimately deciding to run for the White House and winning the Republican Party nomination. But state Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, has submitted legislation that would help clear the way for Pence to seek two offices at once.
Delph's proposal, which was provided to The Indianapolis Star this week, would expand Indiana's election law to allow a sitting governor or state lawmaker to seek both re-election and election to any federal office at the same time.
