Democratic Governor candidate John Gregg blasted Republican candidate Mike Pence for his extremist views on issues crucial to African-Americans and all Hoosiers. Appearing on Afternoons With Amos, Gregg talked about Mike Pence’s past positions of numerous issues, from opposing the minimum wage, the Americans for Disabilities Act and health care and services for women. Gregg pointed out that in a book written when Pence headed a conservative Indiana think tank in the early 1990’s, that said “Some will argue that it is unfair for inner-city youth to receive lower wages because of conditions they did not create. This is undoubtedly true. Accidents of birth however, are never fair.” Talking with Amos and Listeners, Gregg explained his positions of putting Hoosiers back to work, improving educating and Gregg’s view that reform must come to the Department of Child Services. Even though he “knows” and likes” Mike Pence, John Gregg said he disagrees strongly with Pence’s “extremist agenda” for Indiana.
