GOP's Pence to Decide on 2012 Bid after New Year

Sunday, 07 Nov 2010 10:54 AM


WASHINGTON – Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, a potential GOP contender for the White House in 2012, says he'll make a decision after Jan. 1 about whether to enter the race.

Pence, who's stepping down as the No. 3 House Republican leader, says he's "humbled" by encouragement that he consider running.

He tells ABC's "This Week" that he'll seek guidance from God as he decides his political future.

After the GOP election victories last week, Pence said he was stepping down as the GOP's conference chairman. He alluded to a potential bid for president or Indiana governor.

In September, Pence finished first in a straw poll of social conservatives who were asked to name the person they'd like to see as the 2012 nominee.
