Pence is tops in conservatives' straw vote - Yahoo! News

About 723 out of more than 2,000 registered attendees cast Saturday at the annual Values Voter Summit. Pence was the top choice for president with 24 percent of the vote.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, received 22 percent, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Palin.

Palin was given the honors for vice president. She came in second behind Pence, who also topped that category.
Since I know almost nothing about the guy, I went to his website and looked at the issues section. He is not that extreme a right winger as best I can tell, but is definitely very conservative. I found the section on his issues page about the War on Terror hilarious though...it talks only about Iraq, does not mention Afghanistan.

HAven't you heard? Saddam was funding terrorists all along. There is no proof of that, other than some of our "leaders" telling us so...

The pages are update quite often actually. My roommate in DC was interning for his senator from Iowa. Also the comments from what Redress linked in the OP were funny.
