Saturday marked the first time Republican Lt. gubernatorial candidate Sue Ellspermann had visited Brazil.

But the message was the same.

People want to know how state legislators can attract more jobs to Indiana.

"We've been sharing (Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence's) campaign policies and encouragement," Ellspermann said. "And the importance of this election."

Ellspermann visited with members of the Clay County Republican Club at the YMCA of Clay County Saturday. The club treated the candidate to a breakfast. After the meal, Ellspermann discussed the campaign.

"(The people) have been very affirming," she said, "and very supportive. They have paid solid attention to the ideas presented."

While on the campaign trail, Ellspermann said Hoosiers have expressed a great liking of Pence and his policies.

"People really like Mike Pence and the type of leader he is," she said. "They know him, like him and respect him.

"Mike and I see this as a job interview. We will continue to listen and share with Hoosiers and let them respond. It's been very positive so far."

Ellspermann said she has regularly made two-three stops in various counties on a daily basis. Saturday's Clay County visit was her only one of the day.

She added Hoosiers, across the board, have said they hope to see the work of current Gov. Mitch Daniels continue and possibly expand further.

"Hoosiers have appreciated the great work of Gov. Daniels," Ellspermann said. "We're going to continue to accelerate on building the policies of the Daniels/Skillman (ticket)."
