Pence Up For Conference Chair

via Human Events, Elizabeth Meinecke reports that Republicans in the House make an important move towards rebuilding their brand by nominating Indiana's Mike Pence as Republican Party Conference Chair, the #3 spot in the House. Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio and Republican Study Committee Chair Jeb Hensarling of Texas both nominated Pence, a former radio talk show host, due to his communications skills.

"The Conference -- formerly chaired by Rep. Adam Putman -- is the medium of communicating the House GOP’s message to the media and American public. It also elects House Republican leadership and is an internal organizer for Republican representatives. The chairman is the voice of his party’s message."

Pence is a former RSC Committee Chair and is running unopposed for the position to this point. Pence serves on the Judiciary and Foreign Affairs committees in the House.
