The Indiana Democratic Party was quick to send out a post-inaugural statement wishing Pence well, but also poking him as well.
“We wish Governor Pence the best on his first day in office, and we look forward to seeing his full legislative agenda soon,” said party chairman Dan Parker. “We hope it will focus, as he pledged, on jobs and the economy and not on issues that will divide our state and put certain Hoosiers at a significant disadvantage.”
Also sworn in Monday were Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann, Pence’s running mate and former legislator from Ferdinand; and Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller, who was re-elected for a second term in November.
