IBJ PODCAST: VP Mike Pence’s ‘Path to Power’


There was a moment during Republican Mike Pence's term as governor that it seemed his public service career might be over. Local and national outrage over the the Religious Freedom Restoration Act he had signed into law threatened to derail his larger political ambitions.

But Donald Trump picked Pence out of what might have been a losing reelection effort and resurrected his career—and then voters propelled him into the vice president's office.

Journalist and teacher Andrea Neal is about to release the first book about how Pence rose to power. She talks to IBJ's Mason King about what she learned and what makes Pence tick.
