Pence calls on all to improve Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — New Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is calling upon all residents to improve themselves and help better the state.

Pence used his inaugural address Monday morning to say all Hoosiers have a role to play and "a torch to light."

Pence credited outgoing Gov. Mitch Daniels for leaving the state in good condition. But Pence says state government must remain bold because many families and businesses are struggling to get by.

The former Republican congressman says he also wants to give parents more choices in the education of their children and seek to strengthen institutions that nurture the family.

He says he wants Indiana to "become a torch of opportunity and hope" that inspires the nation.
