Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence talked to voters at the Indiana State Fair at the final "Meet the Candidates" session Wednesday.
Pence spoke on many topics including state funding for education. He said despite the state freezing spending on education the last two years, Indiana has seen increasing graduation rates and test scores. He says the issue is not the amount of money being spent, but how its spent.
Pence also mentioned his proposed 10-percent income tax cut plan. He said his plan will help Indiana residents and small businesses keep more of their own money and will put about five hundred million dollars back into the state's economy.
Pence said he will have a response to Governor Daniels next week on his stance on expanding or not expanding Medicaid under Obamacare. He said he wants to make sure a lot of thought and consideration goes into the decision because it directly affects the lives of every Indiana citizen and will affect the strength of the state.
