Governor Mike Pence will deliver the national Republican weekly radio address Saturday.
He gave the weekly Republican radio address nearly half a dozen times as a congressman. This will be his first time as governor.
Pence says he’s using the address, which he’s prerecorded, to tell a national audience about what states are doing to promote fresh thinking on a broad range of issues including health care.
“I also took the opportunity to tout the Healthy Indiana Plan and to talk about the innovation that we’ve brought in consumer-driven healthcare, the popularity of that program and how I think that’s a model for permitting more freedom and more flexibility at the state level,” he says.
Some have suggested the radio address helps raise Pence’s profile, with an eye towards a potential 2016 presidential run. Pence says he’s solely focused on his job as governor and not any higher office.
