Pence hosts Walker at Packer loss

Mike Pence was a bit hoarse while addressing the Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting Monday.

That's because he was at Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday for a wild, last-second Indianapolis Colts win over the Green Bay Packers.

And he had an interesting game companion -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

"And boy, was that a lot of fun. How about those Colts? Wow," Pence said. "Gov. Walker was supportive of me before the game, and I didn't ask after."
