Mike Pence is the most far-right candidate nominated for a national office in modern times.

He addressed the annual meeting of ALEC, the American Legislative Executive Council, of which he is a member, and declared that he supported ALEC “before it was cool.”

ALEC is an extremist organization that is funded by major corporations and has 2,000 members who are mostly state legislators. It develops model legislation showing how to replace public schools with charters and vouchers, how to get rid of unions, how to get rid of teacher certification, how to get rid of teacher tenure. Its model legislation targets any and all regulations, including gun controls and the environment.

There is a website called ALEC Exposed that shows who belongs to ALEC, who funds it, and what its model legislation is.
