During the Vice Presidential Debate, Mike Pence was asked to give an example of a time when his religious beliefs and his responsibilities as a public servant had come into conflict. He articulated no such example. As I’ve written elsewhere, this demonstrates a general lack of respect for all faiths, moralities, and perspectives other than his own.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence defended running mate Donald Trump during Tuesday’s vice presidential debate against Democratic Senator Tim Kaine. But professor Mike Wolf says it’s unlikely very many undecided voters were swayed by his performance.

IPFW's Omnibus Lecture Series kicked off Thursday with a sold-out lecture from former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

In a press conference Thursday afternoon, Bush said Donald Trump's selection of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate was one of Trump's better decisions.

But Bush wouldn’t endorse Trump and said he isn’t sure how he will vote in November.

“For the first time in my life, I haven’t figured that out completely yet,” he said. “I’m really interested in the first debate.”

Indiana State Sen. Karen Tallian announced Monday she is withdrawing from the race for governor. The Democrat is the second candidate to leave the gubernatorial race. Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz withdrew her candidacy earlier this month. 

Tallian said in a statement she supports the only remaining Democrat, former House Speaker John Gregg. 

Governor Mike Pence says the state’s investigation of Planned Parenthood was important in the wake of what he calls appalling remarks by senior officials of the national health care provider.

Pence ordered the State Health Department to investigate the abortion provider two weeks ago in the wake of videos allegedly showing national Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue, which is against the law in Indiana.

Governor Mike Pence hosted a community conversation at Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne on Tuesday. But many attendees didn’t think their questions were answered.

Questions at the forum included topics like education, criminal justice and gay marriage.

Brian Weck of Fort Wayne asked about North Side High School’s mascot. He’s had six kids graduate from North Side, and says the Redskins mascot is about honoring Native Americans, not offending them.

Governor Mike Pence is reaching across party lines to fill an open seat in his administration.  Pence announced on Wednesday Democrat Jim Schellinger will head the state’s economic development agency.

Schellinger, who’s served on the Indiana Economic Development Corporation’s Board of Directors since Pence took office, will take a leave of absence from his role as CEO of the Indianapolis company CSO Architects.  The Hoosier Democrat ran for governor in 2008, losing in the primary.

Governor Mike Pence ceremonially signed two bills into law today that will expand broadband Internet access across the state.  Pence says it’s legislation like this that’s driving down the state’s unemployment rate.

The new Broadband Ready Communities Development Center will team with local governments to encourage and approve communications projects that expand Internet access. Pence says last week, Nashville, Ind., became the first area in the state to be approved as broadband ready.
