VP Pence's brother wins GOP nomination for Indiana US House seat

VP Pence's brother wins GOP nomination for Indiana US House seat”

Greg Pence, the brother of Vice President Mike Pence, will run for Congress in IN on the Republican ticket in November after he won the primary in Indiana's 6th congressional district on Tuesday.

If successful in the November race which he's favored to win, it would be the first office held by Greg Pence, who owns two antique malls and is a Marine Corps veteran. Still, he easily won the primary largely because of his younger brother, who represented the 6th District for a dozen years before becoming IN governor. He as soon as ran a now-bankrupt chain of Tobacco Street comfort shops.

Greg Pence simply defeated Muncie entrepreneur Jonathan Lamb and three different opponents within the sixth District GOP major. With the help of his brother and other Republican heavy-weights, Greg Pence was able to raise nearly $1.2 million in the race.

Lamb, 36, criticized his opponent for counting on the Pence title and dodging debates. Republican Luke Messer chose to vacate the seat in order to run for U.S. Senate.

Greg Pence ran his campaign as an ally of his brother, and on a platform that reflects President Donald Trump's agenda.

Pence said in a recent interview that his family name is a "good name" and that he prefers meeting voters instead of debating.

Also running in the GOP primary were Stephen MacKenzie, Mike Campbell and Jeff Smith. She was the top vote-getter among six Democrats.

In distinction to Pence's fundraising success, Lamb loaned his personal marketing campaign round $800,000 in an effort to maintain tempo, making the sixth District race the most costly within the state.
