>>>Coverage of Mike Pence in Mason

Here’s what five people who attended had to say:

Frank Bruening, 80, Hamilton County

“I think Clinton will be a disaster. She’s for big government, she’s corrupt, she uses the government for her own personal advancement. She’s not good for the country.”

Kathy Elliott, 59, Mason

“I like Mike Pence….I think he’s a very genuine man. I think he’s honest. He’s got a lot of integrity. He’s classy.”

Mike Ryan, 70, Loveland

“For my conservative values he hit it right on the head.”

Danielle Timmins, 48, Symmes Twp.

“I know (Pence) differs from Trump on certain hot topics. I want to hear what he has to say again. I don’t think everyone’s going to agree on every point. Even your friends don’t. It’s probably better to have differing opinions. That’s the whole point right? To have constructive debate on all the important topics so that you can hear from all viewpoints.”

Tim Walker, 56, Batavia

“Bring back this nation, on nation under God…The important policies of this race are the economy, national security and bringing this country back together.”
