Pence selects pro-life Sue Ellspermann as running mate
May 21, 2012
Indiana gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence officially announced today that he has selected Sue Ellspermann of Ferdinand to run for lieutenant governor. As a freshman member of the Indiana legislature, Ellspermann has compiled a 100% pro-life voting record including support for the historic pro-life gains in the 2011 legislature.
In 2011, Ellspermann was spotlighted by World magazine as an example of the new wave of pro-life women entering the policy arena.
“Sue Ellspermann is a solid pro-life voice who is already established as a leader on life issues at the Statehouse,” states Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter. ”Her energetic and enthusiastic support for advancing pro-life policies in Indiana is appreciated, and we look forward to the perspective she will bring to communities across Indiana during this important election cycle.”
Ellspermann holds a bachelor’s degree and a PhD in industrial engineering from Purdue and the University of Louisville. Ellspermann founded her own consulting business, which she ran for 20 years before joining the University of Southern Indiana in 2006 as the Director of the Center for Applied Research and Economic Development.
