Pence talks politics, economy with HU students

Gov. Pence talks with a class at Huntington University on Nov. 6, 2014.


HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WANE) – Some students at Huntington University got to pick the brain of the top state official Thursday.  Governor Pence talked to an economics class full of soon-to-be graduating seniors.

They talked about everything from the recent midterm election results to unemployment.  It seemed the most important thing to the Labor Economics class was Pence making the time to visit.

“Just his genuineness came forth in the classroom today. Having the chance to sit down with students in an informal matter with all of the cameras off to talk with the governor,” Senior at Huntington University Sam Thompson said.

It’s not every day that the Governor has time to visit a college campus to talk with students.  The focus of the conversation:  “We talked a lot about a growing Indiana economy and a growing labor force here in the state and my commitment to vocational education in every high school as well to make sure our adult workforce education is better aligned to the job openings that exist in Indiana today,” (R) Indiana Governor Mike Pence said.

Although there was no question or topic off limits.

“Well I definitely tried to see if he was going to run for President in 2016 or 2020. He didn’t really give an answer. He says he wanted to focus on Indiana. That’s where his heart is and his passion is,” Senior at Huntington University Aaron Tan said.

Now that the midterm election is over and republicans are now the majority in Congress, Pence hopes the President will work with them on the growth of the economy.
