WASHINGTON, Feb. 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- Matt Lloyd, Spokesman for U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, issued the following statement:
"After receiving considerable encouragement to run for the United States Senate last month, Mr. Pence made a decision to seek reelection to the House of Representatives and help lead a conservative comeback in 2010 and that decision stands. Mr. Pence's decision was made irrespective of polls or Senator Bayh's intention to seek reelection. Mr. Pence believes that Republicans will retake the House in 2010 and he counts it a privilege to be a part of the House Republican leadership during this historic election. Mr. Pence filed for reelection to the 6th Congressional District of Indiana and will continue to serve his constituents and help lead the effort to retake the House of Representatives."
