Pence busy fundraising

It's an off-election year and Gov. Mike Pence is only halfway through his first year in office.

But that didn't stop him from sending an email seeking last-minute campaign contributions on Saturday.

Pence said, "Every day our team looks at the "Roadmap for Indiana" checklist and makes sure we continue to make progress."

But the email said Pence still has campaign obligations and needed help before a critical fundraising deadline July 15 to hit targets.

"Our fundraising totals will send a strong message to opponents and special interests," Pence said in the campaign email.

He also included links to his website and asked for donations of $5 to $100.
