Pence stumps for Holcomb in Jeffersonville
Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence was back in his home state of Indiana on Sunday.
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) – Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence was back in his home state of Indiana on Sunday.
He was stumping for Indiana gubernatorial candidate Republican Eric Holcomb. Holcomb has been Pence’s Lieutenant Governor since being elected four years ago.
“It's great to be home and great for Karen and me to be back home again,” Pence said. “With Eric Holcomb fighting on our side with one role after another, with him working with our senators and then with him as my lieutenant governor, we took Indiana from good to great.”
While the event was designed as a rally for Holcomb and his aspirations for the position of Governor of Indiana, things quickly shifted to the presidential campaign.
“Any progress we've made in Indiana has been in spite of what’s coming out of Washington DC not because of it,” Pence said.
Pence touched on everything from healthcare to nominees for the Supreme Court. He criticized democratic nominee for president Hilary Clinton on a number of occasions.
“To get this economy going again Donald Trump and I are going to roll our sleeves up, we're going to cut taxes across the board, we're going to roll back regulations and we're going to repeal Obamacare lock, stock and barrel,” Pence said.
“The Supreme Court is not a representative part of our government it is there to upload our constitution and uphold our laws,” he said.
Across the street from the rally at Nachand Field House in Jeffersonville, where the rally was held, supporters of Clinton voiced their displeasure with the campaigns of Trump, Pence and Holcomb.
“With so much at stake, Hoosiers need a governor who will put common sense ahead of political agendas,” said Indiana state Democratic party chairman John Zody. “Mike Pence and Eric Holcomb have done the opposite and Indiana has been on a detour for the past 4 years.”
With Election Day quickly approaching Pence is scheduled to be back on the Presidential campaign trail early this week with events in Florida.
