FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)- The race is on for the Indiana Governor’s seat. Governor Mike Pence and Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb kicked off a three day ‘Start Your Engines’ tour across the Hoosier State.

Pence and Holcomb stopped in Fort Wayne to open a new campaign office on West Berry street for the election. The campaign tour included stops earlier in the day in Speedway and Danville.

“I am here in Fort Wayne to say the primary is over, the green flag has dropped, and the race is on to the checkered flag and a more prosperous future,” said Governor Pence.

The Governor’s statewide tour comes days after reports that Donald Trump is considering him as a running mate. Pence said his focus is on the Indiana State House not the White House.

“I have no interested in that at all,” said Pence. “This is such an exciting time in the life of our state. I can tell you, 110% of my focus is on doing my job today and hopefully earning the opportunity to continue to serve the people in Indiana the next four years.”

Three protesters were outside of the new campaign office speaking out against Governor Pence. Inside, Pence delivered a speech to the dozens of supporters, explaining why they should vote for him instead of his Democratic opponent John Gregg.

“Hoosiers have a choice to make,” he said. “My opponent likes to say this election is about my record. He’s only half right about that. The truth is this race is about my record and it’s about it’s about his record. And his record couldn’t be any more different than the path that we have chosen over the last 12 years.”

Governor Pence talked about the continued progress that has been made under his administration. Pence said jobs and education are among the biggest concern for voters andthat’s where his campaign will focus.

“We will figure out how we can continue to promote the kind of policies that will encourage investment here in Fort Wayne, Northeast Indiana, and across the Hoosier state, “he said.

Pence is confident his track record will lead him to victory in the November Election.

“We have more Hoosiers going to work than ever before,” he said. We’ve made tremendous progress in education and infrastructure and we’re seeing the growth in jobs in Indiana that reflect all of that. Over the next 6 months we’ll lay out the progress that we’ve made and the choice Hoosiers have. I just know Hoosiers are going to continue to choose the path that has laid out the unprecedented property that we’ve been experiencing.”
