Indianapolis – Spokeswoman for Governor Mike Pence, Kara Brooks, issued the following statement after Governor Pence met with presidential candidate Donald Trump at the Governor’s Residence. Trump requested the meeting with Governor Pence. Previously, Governor Pence said he is willing to meet with all three Republican presidential candidates when they come to Indiana ahead of Indiana’s May 3 primary.
“Governor Pence was pleased to welcome Mr. Trump back to Indiana and hear firsthand his plans for the country. The Governor was also grateful for the opportunity to describe Indiana’s economic success and expressed his desire to have a partner in the White House who will help advance pro-growth economic policies, reduce burdensome regulation and curb the size and scope of government. With more than 130,000 new private sector jobs created since he took office, Governor Pence believes addressing these issues is critical in order for Indiana to continue to be a great place to live, work and raise a family.”
