Mike Pence is homeless after leaving office
- 27 January 2021
Former vice president Mike Pence, who was thrust into the spotlight during the last days of Donald Trump’s presidency, does not have a permanent place to live since leaving his official residence at the US Naval Observatory in Washington, according to reports, APA reports citing the Independent.
Though in his farewell address Mr Pence announced he was moving back to his home state Indiana in the summer, he offered no details on the specifics of where he would move with his wife, Karen Pence.
Official records show Mr Pence, who grew up in Columbus, hasn’t owned a home in Indiana for at least the past eight years. Instead, political allies told Business Insider that the former second couple were “couch-surfing" at the residences of various Republican politicians in the state.
The Pences are currently believed to be staying in a cabin that the Indiana governor, Eric Holcomb, uses as a retreat, while two Republicans close to the former vice-president were quoted as saying they spent time at a home belonging to Mr Pence’s brother in Columbus.
