INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg says Indiana’s problems have taken a back seat to Mike Pence’s personal ambition and ideology during his time as governor.
Pence and Gregg had been in a contentious campaign for governor before Pence withdrew his candidacy Friday following Donald Trump’s announcement of Pence as his vice presidential pick.
Gregg says his campaign has been “about Indiana’s future and who is best equipped to clean up the mess Mike Pence made.”
The former Indiana House speaker says he wants to hear whether the potential new Republican candidates will continue Pence’s policies. Gregg says Pence has neglected issues such as a lack of high-paying jobs, infrastructure problems and drug abuse.
