He elaborates on what it means when people express their concerns about the Hoosier state.
Holcomb also speaks on the goals he has in mind as he focuses on his campaign to run for governor of Indiana.
Holcomb says he came to the political scene 12 years ago and says much has changed in those dozen years. He pointed out that Indiana has a triple A credit rating which matters allowing the state to diversify the economy.
