Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence has filed a personal financial disclosure form that shows his salary as Indiana governor is his main source of income.

Donald Trump’s running mate filed the form required under federal law on Thursday. It lists $173,860 in salary for Pence and says Karen Pence’s earnings from a towel charm business and her work as a self-employed artist each bring in less than $1,001.

Listed as Pence’s other assets and income are a bank account worth no more than $15,000 and two education savings plans each worth no more than $15,000.

The document also lists seven student loans totaling at least $95,000. The Pences have three children.

A statement announcing the filing says Pence will release his tax returns “in the near future.”

Meanwhile, a Trump campaign official had said that Mike Pence along with the GOP nominee Donald Trump will tour the flood damage in ravaged Louisiana on Friday. That person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the plans before they were officially announced.

Meanwhile,  Mike Pence said he wants to help New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat who recently struggled when asked whether Hillary Clinton is trust-worthy.

During a town hall event in Manchester on Thursday, Donald Trump’s running mate played a CNN interview with Hassan. Three times, Hassan evaded direct the interviewer’s questions about whether her party’s presidential nominee is honest or trustworthy. Hassan’s spokesman later clarified that Hassan believes Clinton is both.

Pence showed the video clip after saying Americans are sick of the “pay-to-play” politics he accuses Clinton of engaging in as secretary of state.

The Indiana governor sarcastically offered to help Hassan with her answers by saying simply “no” and put in a plug for U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a Republican whose seat Hassan is trying to win.
