(WANE) Congressman Mike Pence is one of the country's leading conservatives, the group experts say John McCain needs to get in his corner to win the presidency. Pence has also been mentioned in several newspapers across the country as a name that could possibly be on the short list when presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain is selecting a running mate.
"I want to hear him talking about the right to life, the sanctity of marriage, second amendment rights, and lower taxes," said Pence in an exclusive interview with Newschannel 15's Mark Mellinger this week. In fact, Pence offered McCain just that advice in a speech last week, telling McCain, "Embrace the right, and the right will embrace you". His words prompted a phone call from McCain the next day. "I think he received it as advice from a friend," said Pence.
