Indiana’s Republican leaders are planning quite the welcome home for the new Vice-President Elect.
Mike Pence will be welcomed home with a rally at the Indianapolis International Airport. It will be held at the International Airport Building, near the Million Air Terminal at 5:30 p.m. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.
Pence will be the sixth Vice-President in America’s history. Schuyler Colfax served in the Ulysses S. Grant administration from 1869 until 1873. Thomas Hendricks was Grover Cleveland’s Vice-President for eight months in 1885 until he died. Teddy Roosevelt’s Vice-President was Charles W. Fairbanks from 1905 until 1909. Thomas R. Marshall became Vice-President when Woodrow Wilson was in office from 1913 until 1921. From there, there was a lull in Indiana Vice-Presidents until Dan Quayle, who served in the George H.W. Bush administration from 1989 until 1993.
