INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after it was reported that Mike Pence is currently traveling to meet with Donald Trump about the possibility of joining his campaign as the vice presidential nominee.
“Mike Pence seems to be more concerned about his own political career than the job Hoosiers elected him to do. With plummeting approval ratings, Gov. Pence now wants to hit the ejection button so he can avoid campaigning on his failed tenure as governor. This includes RFRA, one of the worst abortion laws passed into law, and a lagging state economy with many Hoosiers out of work. Any form of legislation Mike Pence has passed as governor was with one eye on the political agenda of Washington, D.C. insiders. So once again, Mike Pence is only out for himself – not for Hoosiers.”
