After graduating from college, he opened a law office and chaired the National Space Council as Vice President. In 1994, his autobiography Standing Strong came out.
Dan Quayle was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, in February 1947. He is the son of Martha Corinne and James Cline Quayle.

Quayle told the media that he thought homosexuality was a choice during this campaign and was even described as calling it “the wrong option.”
In the weeks before the 1992 Republican National Convention, Quayle was seen as a liability by many right-wing strategists, which caused Bush to lag in the polls.
