Candidates for Indiana Governor campaign in Evansville on Election Eve

Republican Mike Pence Republican Mike Pence

Republican Mike Pence and Democrat John Gregg campaigned in Evansville on Monday as part of their Election Eve campaign for Indiana Governor. 

Both candidates stopped by their respective party headquarters.
 
Earlier Monday afternoon, Republican Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, got to work on the phones. 

But before calling voters, Pence spoke to volunteers at Vanderburgh County Republican Headquarters, encouraging them on in the final hours before the election.

Congressman Larry Bucshon and Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke were also on hand.

Around lunchtime, John Gregg visited Democratic Headquarters, and he says he's confident they'll pull out a victory. 

The Knox County native told 14 News our area will be important for him on Tuesday, and here's what he said when he was asked about the campaign experience.

"It's been an honor to run. Our challenge has been the same since day one to get people to look beyond the party label, be open-minded. Look and see, you know as I tell people, I don't have a fancy slogan, but what I do have is real-life experience and that's been great," Gregg said.

John Gregg was headed to Terre Haute later on Monday and planned to vote Tuesday in his hometown of Sandborn.

Mike Pence's camp declined an on camera interview.
