Gubernatorial Candidate Eric Holcomb Unsure About Voting For Trump

dd

Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence’s pick to take his place as Indiana governor isn’t guaranteeing he’ll vote for Donald Trump.

Republican Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he has always intended to support the GOP presidential ticket, but that he’ll now evaluate how he’ll vote over the coming weeks. Holcomb says Pence hasn’t pressured him to support Trump following the release Friday of Trump’s crude comments about groping women.

Holcomb became the GOP nominee for governor in July after Pence dropped his re-election campaign to become Trump’s running mate.

No Republican officials in Indiana have publicly retracted their support for Trump. The campaign of U.S. Rep. Todd Young, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, says he is still supporting Trump despite “deep reservations.”
