Pence makes Columbus stop

Governor and vice presidential candidate Mike Pence made a surprise visit home on Saturday.

Our news-gathering partners at The Republic report that Pence stopped in Columbus to support his Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb at campaign events, including a stop at the Upland Brewery Pump House, the downtown farmer’s market and at Joe Willy’s Burger Bar.

Pence was last back here in his hometown during the Bartholomew County 4-H Fair, just days before he was announced as Donald Trump’s running mate.
