Lynchburg, VA (PRWEB) September 16, 2016
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell has announced that Indiana Governor, and Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Mike Pence will speak in Convocation on Wednesday, Oct. 12.
Falwell said Pence reached out to him after reading an editorial that Falwell wrote for The Washington Post.
Pence was elected the 50th Governor of the State of Indiana in 2012 and inaugurated January 14, 2013.
Liberty’s Convocation stage has become a popular stop for those seeking political office. In this election cycle, guests have included Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump, who spoke in January before becoming the Republican presidential nominee. Jeb Bush was the 2015 Commencement speaker.
As an institution, Liberty does not endorse anyone for political office and invites all presidential candidates to speak in Convocation.
