#WhoIsEricHolcomb? A Man Against His Boss – Mike Pence

INDIANAPOLIS – One day after Mike Pence kicked out Sue Ellspermann as lieutenant governor – who does he replace her with? Eric Holcomb, a direct clone and in complete lock-step with the governor.

However, much like Sue Ellspermann, Holcomb has a history of disagreeing with Mike Pence. Since the governor wants a “yes man” as his second-in-command – how long will this relationship last?
