WISH-TV: “…you get a sense that it’s not just Democrats who object to [Gov. Pence’s] leadership.”
INDIANAPOLIS – In case you missed it, Mike Pence’s campaign is already on life support as last Friday, John Gregg outraised the incumbent governor in the fundraising quarter $1.8 million to $1.5 million. And had it not been for a last minute $500,000 bailout by the RGA, Gregg would have trounced Pence by a 2-1 margin. From across Indiana to Washington D.C., this news caught the political world by surprise.
So what’s this mean? With economically damaging policies like RFRA and the state ranking 38th in the nation for per capita income, Hoosiers simply don’t trust Mike Pence as he’s time and again put his political agenda ahead of the well-being of Indiana. And if you don’t believe us, just watch this video.
