Leader Pence?

House Republican Study Committee Chairman Mike Pence (R.-Ind.) told Human Events he is not seeking a position in the House leadership if new elections are held in January, a possibility depending on the progress of the trial of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R.-Tex.) over campaign-finances.  

Pence, however, did not rule out taking a leadership position if drafted.  “I’m not calling for leadership elections, and I have no intention, at this time, of seeking a leadership position in the Republican majority,” he said.  

“I can say very sincerely that I do not feel called in my heart to seek any greater role in the Republican majority.  But I also believe that my life is not my own, and that the Lord put me in this position to serve Him and to serve the values I came here to advance. And however long I get to be in Congress, I will always evaluate my circumstances to determine whether with integrity I can serve Him and serve those values.  But that being said, I have no intention at this time of seeking a leadership position—and I am not calling for leadership elections.”
