WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — As Hoosiers hit the polls Monday for the last day of early voting, Republican Gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb hit the road to do some last-minute campaigning before Election Day.

Holcomb made a stop in West Lafayette Monday afternoon at Triple XXX. He said it’s now up to Hoosiers to determine the future of the state.

“You shouldn’t take your vote for granted or think it doesn’t matter,” Holcomb said. “It matters immensely and it’s going to make a difference in the election, and I hope people line up as they have in the early votes tomorrow to express themselves.”

He told the Associated Press he will “take no vote for granted and leave no stone unturned.” He said the state has come too far during 12 years of Republican rule to now “do a U-turn.” He claims Republicans turned the state around after years of Democratic mismanagement.

“There are people that wore the uniform that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can maintain this Democracy,” Holcomb said. “So I would say express yourself, your voice needs to be heard.”

Holcomb made stops in other Indiana cities earlier Monday, including Elkhart and Fort Wayne. After West Lafayette, Holcomb was headed to Terre Haute and Indianapolis Monday night..

Holcomb faces Democrat John Gregg and Libertarian Rex Bell in Tuesday’s election.
