Pence Hosts Media In Columbus Before Gubernatorial Kickoff

Speaking at Zaharako’s restaurant in downtown Columbus, Pence said he hopes to continue what he characterized as the economic prosperity of the Mitch Daniels administration, noting a recent study which shows only North Dakota and New York had better gross domestic product growth than Indiana in 2010. 

Pence declined to comment on a potential matchup with former House Speaker John Gregg in next year’s general election, but did say he views legislation on social issues – on which Daniels had asked for a “truce” – differently than the governor.

“For me, everything works together,” Pence said. “I think good jobs strengthen families. I think strong families and an affirmation of values creates an environment where we’ll see investment and job creation.”

The congressman will hold an official kickoff rally at noon Saturday in the Commons in downtown Columbus.
