(INDIANAPOLIS) — The Indiana Chamber of Commerce has endorsed Greg Pence in the Republican primary for Indiana’s 6th Congressional District.
“Greg Pence is passionate about helping Indiana be a global leader in innovation and economic opportunity,” offers Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. “With his military, business and community experience, we expect him to be a productive first-term leader in Congress and a champion for job creation, economic growth and free enterprise.”
Pence earned a bachelor’s degree in theology and philosophy and a master’s in business administration from Loyola University of Chicago. He also served as a Marine Corps officer during the Beirut conflict.
Pence and his wife Denise live in Columbus, where he currently serves on the board of advisors for Indiana University–Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) and is also a volunteer member of the Bartholomew County Redevelopment Commission.
Pence says he’s proud to receive the endorsement of the Indiana Chamber and is eager to get to work.
“I will focus on creating jobs, growing our economy, strengthening the middle class and supporting pro-growth policies for small businesses. I know what it’s like to meet a payroll and the burdensome regulations government place on small businesses,” he states. “As an economic-minded person, I understand the responsibility members of Congress play in influencing economic growth. I will always put Hoosiers first.”
The Indiana Chamber’s Congressional Affairs Committee, which determined Pence’s endorsement, is a nonpartisan group comprised of volunteer business leaders from around the state.
The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors – representing over four million Hoosiers – to achieve the mission of “cultivating a world-class environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.”
