Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) isn’t that recognizable outside of his home state, going by his stop for a haircut in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
According to Philadelphia Magazine, Pence went to Jones Barber & Hairstyles for a haircut, a visit that was captured on video by CNN. After discussing football, among other subjects, Pence steps out of the chair calling the haircut “perfect.”
“It’s been a pleasure, young man,” the barber replies. “Now, your name?”
“Mike Pence,” the vice-presidential candidate explains. The barber repeats Pence’s name without suggesting he recognizes it.
“Governor of the state of Indiana. I’m running for vice-president of the United States,” Pence explains, prompting surprise from the barber.
