PALM BEACH, Florida — Some Republicans meeting conservatives in Washington and Palm Beach, Florida, in the past few days have spoken openly about possible presidential campaigns. Not Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

Pence tells about 200 fiscal conservatives at a Club for Growth luncheon on Saturday: "I'm always very humbled to be asked...my focus today, in this moment, is Indiana."

The former congressman could still explore running after his legislature adjourns this spring.

Pence spoke to the influential anti-tax group at its annual winter meeting.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush spoke to the group Thursday. On Friday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz took his turn. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio were scheduled, too.

The six also spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington this past week.
