Gregg Introduces ‘Pence Plan’ To Hoosiers

Pence spokeswoman Christy Denault says, “We think that each candidate should talk about his own ideas and let Hoosiers decide which they like best.”

John Gregg speaks to supporters last month at the statehouse.

Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate John Gregg stopped in Fort Wayne Wednesday to introduce the next segment of what he’s calling “The Pence Plan,” accusing his Republican opponent, Mike Pence, of being unfriendly to Hoosier workers.

Gregg unveiled “The Pence Plan for Working Hoosiers” at a union hall in Fort Wayne. The document cites sections of a two-decade-old book called the “Indiana Mandate” from the Indiana Policy Review Foundation, which was once headed by Pence, as proof that the congressman wants to abolish the minimum wage, repeal the Americans with Disabilities Act, and get rid of family leave laws.

Gregg says Pence has been unwilling to discuss issues so far during the campaign, so this is his effort to start the conversation.

“Hoosiers want to know where people, where they are. That’s all he’s done for 12 years is follow this extreme, divisive agenda,” he says. “Now, ‘bait and switch’, that may work in Washington, DC, but that don’t fly here in Indiana.”

In a statement to Indiana Public Broadcasting, Pence spokeswoman Christy Denault said, “We think that each candidate should talk about his own ideas and let Hoosiers decide which they like best.”
