After Trump Is Elected, The Surprising Truth About Mike Pence Is Exposed
It’s fair to say that until recently, most Americans had never heard of “Mike Pence.” But ironically, this relatively unknown man will soon take the second-highest office in the country.
Today he’s mostly known for being resident-Elect Donald Trump’s sidekick, but truth be told, there’s a side of Mike Pence that many haven’t see.
Unlike most men in Washington, Mike Pence wasn’t raised in a thriving political household. Instead, Pence carved his own path — fueled by deep convictions which were grounded in his faith.
Michael Richard “Mike” Pence was born on June 7, 1959, in Columbus, Indiana. Pence was the youngest of six children born to devout Catholic churchgoers, Nancy Jane and Edward J. Pence, Jr.
His father was a U.S. Army veteran who earned a humble living by operating a gas station.
Pence admits that his parents were never politically inclined. But unlike his family, heroes such as John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. caught young Pence’s attention and inspired him to get involved in politics.
