INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Democrat John Gregg's campaign says Republican Mike Pence and his pick for a lieutenant governor running mate share a focus on a divisive social agenda.
Pence announced Monday that first-term state Rep. Sue Ellspermann would join him on the GOP ticket as he runs to become Indiana's governor.
Gregg's campaign immediately targeted her support for a bill approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature last year to cut off most state funding for Planned Parenthood because it provides abortions.
The Gregg campaign called Pence and Ellspermann a "tea party ticket" focusing on a social issues agenda rather than fighting for jobs and opportunities for Indiana.
Gregg hasn't yet named his running mate.
