Donald Trump’s running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence released his personal financial disclosure, which he filed with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday. Pence plans to release his tax returns in the near future, while Trump says he won’t release his tax returns because he’s under audit.

“Our family has been honored to serve our state and nation. Like many American families, we have been fortunate and blessed to raise three wonderful children and put them through college while doing work that we love,” Pence stated in the press release of the filing, which is required under law.

Pence’s spokesperson Marc Lotter said Pence’s filing shows his family didn’t enrich themselves while serving in public office, “which stands in stark contrast to Bill and Hillary Clinton.”

“As Americans can clearly see, the Pence family has not enriched themselves from their public service, which stands in stark contrast to Bill and Hillary Clinton who traded their public service for tens of millions of dollars in paid speeches, pay-to-play activities, and schemes involving their foundation that led to calls by the FBI for an investigation,” Lotter stated.
