Three prominent Hoosier farmers will be part of the agricultural advisory committee for the Trump-Pence campaign.

The Indiana-based co-chairs of Trump's agriculture committee represent three of the largest and most well-connected farm businesses in the state and the country.

Governor Mike Pence heads into the year of his reelection bid with a sizeable fundraising advantage over his Democratic challenger. 

Likely Democratic nominee John Gregg actually outraised Pence in the first half of 2015 and finished the year with $3.7 million in contributions, and $3.5 million cash on hand. 

But the Republican incumbent raised about $3.5 million  in the last six months…nearly as much as Gregg raised in all of 2015.  Pence ended the year dwarfing the Democrat’s numbers: nearly $7 million cash on hand after bringing in about $5 million over the year.

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has recently been criticized for his lack of foreign policy experience. Carson visited Fort Wayne Thursday for a rally and spent roughly a quarter of his time talking about international politics.

Carson told the standing-room-only crowd that a president can consult experts on topics he is unfamiliar with, like international relations.

“A president doesn’t have to know everything about everything, just like a CEO doesn’t," he says.
