When Gov. Mike Pence offered Eric Holcomb a new job earlier this year, Holcomb wasted little time in accepting. "It took me a millisecond to say yes," said Holcomb, who was sworn in as Indiana's lieutenant governor on March 3. "I like Mike Pence and am comfortable with him. He offered me the I-love-Indiana job and I happily took it." Holcomb, who succeeded Sue Ellsperman as Indiana's No. 2 executive, was the keynote speaker for the second year in a row at the Jennings County Republican Party's annual Lincoln Day Dinner. The event, held April 26, brought a large crowd to the Rolling Hills Shrine Club. Holcomb told the receptive audience about how in the last 11 years GOP governors and legislatures have turned around Indiana. Wednesday, May 25, 2016
