Gubernatorial candidates square off in local debate

Zionsville — The first gubernatorial debate among Republican Mike Pence, Democrat John Gregg and Libertarian Rupert Boneham started out cordially Wednesday night with common agreement on the need to boost jobs, strengthen education and cut taxes.  

But it didn’t take long for differences and verbal jabs to emerge — mostly from Gregg directed toward Pence, the presumptive front-runner.    

During the televised debate, in front of a live audience of 1,200 along with representatives of about 50 media outlets, Pence and Gregg disagreed on the cost of the sweeping federal health care program known as Obamacare, the impact of Indiana’s new “right-to-work” law, Pence’s attendance record in his six terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and Gregg’s budget-balancing abilities when he was Speaker of the Indiana House a decade ago.
