Republican Mike Pence, Democrat John Gregg and Libertarian Rupert Boneham will have conversations with retired Chief Justice Randall Shepard.

John Gregg likens the fight to remove Pat Bauer as head of the House Democratic caucus to "cats in the alley."
Pence’s plan involves supporting veteran-owned businesses. Gregg says his policies would clear the backlog of claims in the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Gubernatorial candidate John Gregg says the Department of Child Services should implement a statewide adoption promotion program, among other initiatives.
Mike Pence says he'd also review all existing business regulation if he's named the state's next governor.
Pence spokeswoman Christy Denault says, “We think that each candidate should talk about his own ideas and let Hoosiers decide which they like best.”
