When asked about his plans for Indiana, Holcomb said he “intends to take the state to the next level. So we will be measuring what we do on a daily basis, soliciting support from Hoosiers from all over the state of Indiana to achieve that goal.”
After learning of his victory in the race of governor, Holcomb said that Gov. Pence was his first call.
Holcomb went on to say that he has “high hopes for the future of Indiana.”
