In the news the last couple of days, you've got Mayor Pete Buttigieg is invoking your name to, I guess, highlight a conservative push back to certain LBGT ideas or marriage equality and the like.

"And when I was governor of IN, we fully implemented that decision IN the law", Pence said when interviewer Joe Kernen asked him if he accepted the Supreme Court's decision as law.

"And that's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand", he continued.

In an interview with CNBC, Pence said that Buttigieg was attacking him for attention in a crowded Democratic field. "He had no problem with Vice President Pence until he gave that speech where he chose to make this a political issue". When I was government of IN we fully implemented that decision IN the law.

During a Thursday panel on MSNBC's Meet the Press, Continetti said Buttigieg is using his Christianity to question Pence's own Christian values.

Buttigieg responded to Pence's claims that they had a "great working relationship" in a tweet.

Anderson also pointed out Pence as IN governor backed a state constitutional amendment that sought to prohibit same-sex marriage IN the Hoosier State. "He knows better. He knows me".

Pence noted the critical importance of freedom of religion and of consciousness in America.

Buttigieg also stated it was time for the nation to move towards "a more a more inclusive and more humane vision of faith" than what the vice president represents. During a ceremonial 2016 groundbreaking at a long-shuttered Studebaker factory, Buttigieg and Pence stood side by side and shook hands after scooping dirt with their shovels. "See, he's flipping it back on Pence", Continetti said. "Where they disagreed, the mayor stood up to him, like when Pence embarrassed the state of IN with anti-LGBTQ laws, or when he wanted to turn away refugees from the state, or when Pence's policies hurt South Bend's workers". Tony Flora, president of the North Central Indiana AFL-CIO chapter, said the mayor says the right things but should expend more political capital. "Pete has his convictions, I have mine".

"Politics aside, we have to be partners when it comes to creating jobs here", Buttigieg said of Pence in 2013. "I think it's helping Pete to get some notoriety by saying that about the vice president". "You are not an activist".
