Indiana governor candidates to discuss farm issues at forum

Agricultural issues will be up for discussion during a forum involving the candidates to become Indiana's next governor.

Republican Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, Democratic candidate John Gregg and Libertarian Rex Bell are all scheduled to take part in Tuesday's 3:30 p.m. forum sponsored by Indiana Farm Bureau.

The event at a farm near the Indianapolis suburb of Brownsburg will have the three candidates taking questions separately for a half-hour each.

Gregg has been criticizing Indiana's economic performance under Republican Gov. Mike Pence and describes Holcomb as Pence's hand-picked replacement since Pence dropped his re-election bid to become Donald Trump's running mate.

Holcomb said he's proud of the state's achievements during the past 12 years of Republican governors.
