He's a complete asswipe. And now his brother wants his old seat.

INDIANAPOLIS Greg Pence, one of Mike Pence's older brothers, launched a campaign Wednesday for the eastern Indiana congressional seat that the vice president and former governor represented for 12 years.

A campaign announcement video touts Greg Pence as a Republican who believes in fiscal responsibility, the sanctity of life and our Second Amendment rights.

I'm going to fight to help (President) Donald Trump help our district, Greg Pence says in the video. That's why I'm running for the United States Congress.

Pence, who once ran the family's now-bankrupt chain of Tobacco Road convenience stores, previously said he had been courted to run for the overwhelmingly Republican district. It covers a broad swath of central and southeastern Indiana, including Muncie and Columbus.

The district's current congressman, Republican Luke Messer, is running for Senate.

As the vice president's brother, Pence is likely the hands-down favorite to win. He has a famous name, served in the Marines, owns an antiques business in the area and even bears a striking resemblance to his brother, with a close-cropped head of white hair.

It's likely he will also be able to tap into the same fundraising network his brother enjoyed in Indiana if not nationally.

An IRS document for Greg Pence's political organization lists Craig Kunkle as its custodian. Kunkle is chief operating officer of a firm called MO Strategies, which is led by the vice president's longtime aide and fundraiser Marty Obst, according to records kept by the Indiana Secretary of State's office.

Greg Pence lives in Columbus, Indiana. That's the same town he and his siblings grew up in after their father, Edward, relocated from Chicago and later built a gas station empire.

He eventually took over the company, Kiel Brothers Oil Co., from his father. But the business, which operated a chain of convenience stores under the name Tobacco Road, went bankrupt under Greg Pence's watch in 2004. That wiped out more than $673,000 of Mike Pence's net worth, according to Pence's 2006 tax filings, which he has publicly released.

Jonathan Lamb, another candidate in the congressional district's GOP primary, said Greg Pence's entry into the race runs counter to Trump's campaign pledge to drain the swamp.

They are trying to anoint someone because of his last name, Lamb said. That's the epitome of the good old boys' club.

I'm thinking Tobacco Road sold tobacco products and alcohol.


On another note, Columbus, IN is a town Snippy wants tu visit. Cummins company town with a lot of world class architecture.
