Corydon, Ind. (WHAS) – It’s crunch time for the Indiana governor’s race. There are just two days left for campaigning before Election Day.

Indiana Republican gubernatorial hopeful, Mike Pence, holds a lead in recent polls. Pence campaigned across the Hoosier state for last minute potential votes.

“I think this opportunity for our state to take our state from good to great, to get our economy moving, to get our schools working for all of our kids is something we’re excited about and we sense that excitement everywhere we go in Indiana,” Pence said.

Gubernatorial hopeful Pence has been pushing his tight fiscal plans to voters. He and his Democratic candidate, former Indiana House Speaker John Gregg, are both focused on jobs and education.

Early this week, Gregg called Pence and Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate Richard Mourdock ‘two peas in a pod.’

Pence responded to that claim saying “we’ll let others talk about what they want to talk about. We’re staying focused.”

The congressman has a 7 point lead over Gregg. Libertarian candidate and reality TV personality Rupert Boneham has 5 percent of the vote.
