Trouble Signs for Pence

Political analyst Tim Swarens thinks Mike Pence is the favorite in Indiana's gubernatorial race, he sees several weaknesses in Pence's position. Ted Cruz's failure in Indiana shows that the Pence's evangelical base is not strong enough to sustain him and he'll need to turn to the pro-business wing of the party who were less than thrilled with RFRA. He also noted that John Gregg retained 85 percent of the Clinton/Sanders votes at the top of the ticket while Pence only held 75 percent of the top of ticket. He also sees risk for Pence in a potential general Trump meltdown in November. You can read Swarens' analysis here.
