Greg Pence, the oldest of six Pence children, is the Statewide Finance Chair for Luke Messer’s campaign for Indiana Senate. Luke Messer’s Twitter account tweeted out this video the same day Messer announced his candidacy for Senate.
In a tightly shot, smartphone video, Greg Pence announces Messer’s yearly barbeque. Pence speaks directly to the camera saying, “Good afternoon everybody, my name is Greg Pence and I’m the Statewide Finance Chairman for Luke Messer and the brother of Vice President Mike Pence.”
He continues to address the camera, “I’ve got some great news for you today. As Luke tweeted out this morning, we’re in! He’s officially running for the U.S. Senate against Senator Joe Donnelly.” Pence gives the details of the annual barbeque, and finishes saying “I’d love to see you there because I like Luke.”
Pence finishes the video with two thumbs up and a grin.
Although he hasn’t confirmed these ambitions publically, Greg Pence is widely expected to run for the 6th Congressional seat being vacated by Messer. Indiana’s 6th is the same Congressional district that his brother, Mike Pence, held until 2013.
Greg Pence often acknowledges he is the brother of Mike Pence. However he is also known for saying, “No, I do not look like him, he looks like me. I’m the oldest.”
