John Gregg likes to joke that he’s known Mike Pence so long that he remembers when the congressman had dark hair and Gregg had locks of his own.
The joke is funny on a few levels: It’s a classic, dry Gregg one-liner that is at once joshing Pence and self-deprecating. It also points out that the two went to law school together and even talked in the decades before the governor’s race.
That they ever talked might be as shocking as the thought of their follicular challenges, as Gregg has lambasted Pence throughout the campaign and Pence has largely ignored Gregg.
But many voters could use glimpses of personality like this as the final weeks of the race for governor wind down.
