Pence gives Holcomb almost $1.25 million for campaign

Niki Kelly | The Journal Gazette

INDIANAPOLIS -- Gov. Mike Pence sent almost $1.25 million last week to new GOP gubernatorial nominee Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, according to a disclosure form filed Wednesday.

The transfer came on July 29, just a few days after Holcomb was nominated for the ballot and just after questions arose surrounding how much of his $7.5 million campaign fund Pence could give Holcomb.

The donation was oddly precise -- $1,248,492.04 -- which could be related to the additional federal rules complicating the contributions.

It is unclear whether this is the only money that will be given to Holcomb from Pence, whose team did not respond to email and phone calls. Holcomb's campaign deferred to Pence.
