CNN is reporting that it has learned from sources "close to" Rep. MIKE PENCE (R-IN) that PENCE will not run for President in 2012 and will instead explore a run for Governor of INDIANA. PENCE hosted a statewide radio talk show in INDIANA while practicing law before he was elected to Congress in 2000.
PENCE won re-election in INDIANA's 6th Congressional District in NOVEMBER and then stepped down as Republican Conference Chairman, which some interpreted as a signal of a possible Presidential or Congressional bid.
