WANE: “Protesters welcome Gov. Pence to Lincoln Dinner”
FORT WAYNE – Yesterday, Third Congressional District Democrats in Fort Wayne stood up to Mike Pence by protesting his visit to the Allen County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner – and everyone took notice. The protest followed Mike Pence’s first term, which has been driven by a political agenda that has divided Hoosiers and brought economic damage to the state, including a $250 million economic impact when he signed RFRA into law.
Yesterday’s protest also followed a rather unpleasant reception last Thursday in Indianapolis where the Governor threw out the opening pitch to a baseball game…filled with boos from the stands.
