Karen Pence: My Husband's Story Began with 3 Principles - Faith, Family & Freedom
Second lady shares story on vice president's road to success
Second Lady Karen Pence opened for her husband, Vice President Mike Pence, during a Trump 2020 campaign event in Peoria, Arizona, where she explained his journey into politics.
“Well, I get the job of introducing the vice president today,” Karen Pence told the crowd.
“And so I’m going to tell you a little story about our history of getting involved in politics.”
The second lady shared that before the couple first began dating about 37 years ago, the now-vice president told her that he wanted to run for Congress.
Pence ran for Congress in 1988 on the theme of “faith, family and freedom.”
But he had little success at the beginning.
Following a defeat in 1988, Pence ran again but lost again in 1990.
“We felt like, you know, maybe this was our idea, maybe this wasn’t God’s calling on our lives,” Karen Pence continued.
After a while, the couple felt that God was calling them to return to the political world.
“We were very comfortable," she said.
"And I’ll just tell you, that’s usually when God puts your life in a blender, and that’s what happened to us.”
“Because in 2000, we did feel a calling on our hearts to run.”

The couple, again, ran on the theme of “faith, family and freedom.”
This time they won.
After becoming governor of Indiana, Mike Pence saw tremendous success when he got a call from Donald J. Trump several years later.
“When we were getting to run for re-election, somebody called and had another idea for us,” the second lady said.
“After we had met the president and Melania and they had time to figure out what they wanted to do, the president called, and this is what he said: ‘Mike, it’s going to be great.’"
"And Mike said, ‘Well if there’s a question there, the answer is yes.’"
“So we ran again on the theme of faith, family, and freedom, and for four years, President Donald Trump has been fighting for your faith, your family, and your freedoms.”
The Pences’ story will continue if the November election goes as well for the Trump administration.
