FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Indiana Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Mike Pence visited Fort Wayne Friday.
About 150 people gathered at the Memorial Coliseum to hear what Pence had to say including those that already have their mind made up and some who are still on the fence.
“I was a little debated on which one I wanted, but I think Trump is going to be the one, ” Teresa Geyer said after the rally was over.
Pence’s visit served two main purposes: getting people to vote for the the Trump-Pence ticket and supporting Todd Young in the race for U.S. Senate and Eric Holcomb in the race to replace Pence for governor.
“This is about security, it’s about prosperity,” Pence said. “It’s about having the right leadership here at the state level and at the national level.”
On the national level… Pence covered the usual campaign topics: expanding the military, repealing Obamacare, Hillary Clinton’s emails and the media. <
Pence also talked about his relationship with Trump.
“He’s charismatic, bigger than life, interesting. And then there’s you know, me. (laughter). We kind of balance the ticket,” Pence added. “As we got to know each other we found out our styles our different but our aspirations and goals are the same.”
Pence now moves on to debate-prep mode as he prepares to face off against Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine, something supporters at the Coliseum were fired up about.
“Mike Pence did a great job,” Supporter Bill Fairfield said. “I’m ready to watch him eat up Tim Kaine on Tuesday.”
