Republican Rep. Mike Pence appears ready to announce he's running for governor of Indiana.
The tea party movement that helped elect dozens of fiscal conservatives in 2010 to give Republicans control of the House is already mobilizing and recruiting candidates in a bid to take over the Senate next year as well.
"We're pretty confident, pretty certain he is in," said Monica Boyer, an Indiana tea party activist invited to attend Thursday's conference call.
"I will put my life on hold to campaign for him," she said. "I believe in him probably more than any politician I've ever met."
