INDIANAPOLIS - Republican Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb took criticism over his coronavirus pandemic orders as he faced his two reelection challengers in a televised debate Tuesday night.
Holcomb faced arguments from Democratic candidate Woody Myers that he's been too passive in the state's recent response as Indiana has seen increases in coronavirus related statistics. Myers blames the increases on the Governor’s move last month when he lifted several coronavirus restrictions.
Libertarian Donald Rainwater pulled his debate comments by siding with conservatives who are angry with Holcomb's statewide mask mandate and other executive orders, which are opposed by Rainwater. Holcomb said that his actions were needed during a public health emergency.
