Governor elect Mike Pence is making the rounds in Indiana, thanking Hoosiers for their support this past election.

Thursday morning, he made his first stop here in South Bend and NewsCenter 16 caught up with him.
Pence talked with fellow Republicans who were invited to the Top Notch Diner on St. Joseph County's west side for breakfast.

It was one month ago that Pence won the gubernatorial election. He will be inaugurated January 14 as the state's 50th governor.

His first plan to help create jobs and keep Indiana's economy growing is to cut income taxes by 10 %, with the state currently carrying a budget surplus.

Republican leaders in the state house have yet to be convinced.
“We are going to make job creation job one,” said Pence. “We have 8% unemployment in Indiana and a quarter million Hoosiers out of work, and so we are going to marshal the resources and work with both parties and do everything we can to get this economy moving in Indiana.”

Pence continues his trip around Indiana and will travel to Evansville and Terre Haute Friday.
