Hoosier gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence stopped by South Bend Thursday to spread his message that "job creation... will be job one", if he's elected in the fall.
The Republican congressman has represented Indiana's sixth district since 2000, and is now making a run for governor.
Thursday, Pence brought his campaign to South Bend, and talked with local business leaders at General Sheet Metal works and the Pfeil Innovation Center as part of his statewide jobs tour.
He got their input on what Indiana's next administration should do to encourage investment and create more job opportunities for Hoosiers.
Pence said he believes one of the biggest obstacles businesses are currently facing, is Obama Care.
“I think Indiana has demonstrated that we've been able to develop innovative solutions in healthcare reform, and without the heavy hand of the federal government imposing new mandates and news taxes, Indiana will be able to continue to lead the way in that area,” said Pence.
Pence will be up against Democrat John Gregg and libertarian Rupert Boneham in November's general election.
