Congressman Mike Pence helped rev up about 730 people at the Indiana Republican state dinner Thursday night by urging them
to help the party regain control of the U.S. House in November and the presidency in 2012. Pence told the crowd in Indianapolis
that the Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress were on a course of runaway spending and big government.
Pence is the third-ranking Republican in the U.S. House and has been mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in 2012.
