Howard County Democratic Party issues Statement on Mike Pence Selection as Trumps VP Pick. 

Howard County Democratic Party Executive Director Nolan Born today released this statement on the Donald Trump’s likely selection of Mike Pence as VP:

“It no surprise that serial sexist and racist Donald Trump has selected far right wing ideologue Mike Pence as his running mate” says Born. “Indiana Republicans were desperate for Trump to take him away because of his abysmal record and the mess he created here in Indiana."

The race for Governor has always been about how John Gregg is the right choice for Indiana.

“The race for Governor has never been just about Mike Pence.” says Born. “This race has been and will continue to be about John Gregg’s vision for Indiana, and who is the most skilled and knowledgeable person to get Indiana out of the mess it's been in for the past four years. Strengthening our economy while creating jobs with a livable wage. Ensuring every Hoosier has access to an affordable, high quality education, and fixing Indiana’s crumbling infrastructure. The voters still have same choice to make. Who knows who the Republican elites in Indianapolis will pick for their new nominee, but rest assured they will continue to push the same far right agenda they have been for years. No matter who the Republican choose as their nominee, the choice remains the same: Are we going to be a state that is growing and prospering in a way that benefits all Hoosiers, or will we continue to only care about the divisive social issues and the privileged few?”

The Howard County Democratic Party meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM at the Party's headquarters, 341 North Main St., Kokomo. Monthly Party meetings are open to all Democratic Party supporters. Supporters can also "like" the Howard County Democratic Party on facebook, follow the Party on twitter @HowardCoDems, or visit the Party’s website
