Former Indiana House Speaker John Gregg, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Indiana, says he wants to put Indiana first. After a nearly decade long break from politics, which included a stint as Interim President of Vincennes University, the Sandborn, Indiana resident appeared on WIBQ's Morning News Watch with Mark Jaynes.
Gregg says he chose to run for Governor after the last election, "turned partisan and dirty." Republican Mitch Daniels won a second term in that election. Gregg says while he has, "deep philosophical and political differences," with his opponent, Republican Congressman Mike Pence, he respects Congressman Pence and says they have been friends for years.
Gregg called Pence a career politician with some, "radical Ideas that aren't good for Indiana." His campaign focus will be on creating jobs, reducing outsourcing, gaining more control for Indiana from the Federal Government and giving counties, cities and towns throughout Indiana more decision-making authority.
