On November 29, former Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the University of Chicago’s Mandel Hall from 10:30 to 11:45 A.M. The Institute of Politics (IOP) announced earlier this month that it is hosting an event titled “On the Record with Mike Pence,” featuring the former vice president. Outgoing IOP Director David Axelrod is set to moderate the discussion.
The event will take place two weeks after the November 15 debut of Pence’s autobiography, So Help Me God, in which he recalls his conflicting loyalties to the president, the Constitution, and his Christian faith.
Before assuming office as the 48th vice president of the United States, Pence served as Indiana’s 50th governor and as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Indiana’s second congressional district. Throughout his career in public service, he promoted policies that lowered taxes and unemployment, expanded trade school opportunities, and developed Indiana’s pre-K program.
Pence’s philosophy emphasizes limited government and constitutionalism. His convictions followed him to the White House, where he took a firm stance against former President Donald Trump’s demands to reject President Joe Biden’s victory and was consequently targeted by protestors during the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.
Pence is a statesman unlike most others. He implemented effective policies, exuded moral integrity, and continually humbled himself before God. Do not miss this rare opportunity to speak with a patriotic leader who held our republic together in the midst of severe turmoil.
