Pence has a more normal personality but his views are scary.

In the one and only political campaign I worked on, I worked against Governor Pence. This was in 1988. I was 18, Mr. Pence had not won any election yet and the Republicans were having a primary election to see who could run against Phillip Sharp, a long time Democrat Congressman.
A Mr. Bright was running against Governor Pence in the primary. Mr. Bright had a part time secretary who was in my study hall and I thought she was rather cute. So when she collected volunteers for the Bright campaign, I was right there. I was in charge of rounding up the vote for Mr. Bright in a certain precinct. While Mr. Bright did indeed win the precinct I was in charge of, he did not win the primary. None of the stories have a happy ending. Mr. Bright lost, Governor Pence lost in the general election, and I never did get a date with that secretary.
