Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was on “Fox News Sunday” today to discuss his state, the nation and the crisis in Ukraine.

As governor, Pence has cut taxes dramatically, pulled out of the Common Core curriculum, pushed an increase in private school vouchers, and spent $400 million on new highway projects. He said that Indiana is demonstrating that government can balance budgets, have strong reserves and invest in education and more.

“I have strongly supported the right to keep and bear arms, I truly believe that firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens makes our families and communities more safe, not less safe,” he said.

Pence also suggested that the nation deploy a robust missile field across Europe to send a strong message to Russia, echoing Ronald Reagan’s sentiment of “peace through strength.”
