Gov. Mike Pence rallies Trump supporters in Mason Oct. 17, 2016.

Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence rallied supporters Monday in Mason telling a crowd at the Manor House that he and Donald Trump will create jobs, lead on the world stage, repeal Obamacare, and chose a Supreme Court justice that will uphold the constitution."When Donald Trump is President of the United States we will lead once again on the world stage with American strength," said Pence. "We will rebuild our military. We will restore the arsenal of democracy. We will renew our allies and we we will hunt down and destroy ISIS at its source and any terrorist organization that threatens our people or inspires violence at home."

Pence addressed additional news out Monday that Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy offered to allow more FBI agents to travel to additional countries if the agency would loosen its classifications related to the Clinton email server.

"If only for her years of pay-to-play politics, corruption, and cover-ups, Hillary Clinton must never be allowed to serve as President of the United States of America."

He also put a challenge to get Republicans to the polls to act as monitors. "We have 22 days Ohio," he said. "If you're here at a rally and you have not yet volunteered to participate in the electoral process by respectfully providing accountability at a polling place come Election Day, then you haven't yet done all that you can do."

Joe Puls of Cincinnati's West Side came out to support the governor because of his stance on abortion. "Mr. Pence is very pro-life and between the two candidates that's the first thing I look for to protect our youngest citizens and find a better way for them than currently what's happening."

Gloria Potter of West Chester also likes Pence's pro-life stance and says she's supporting the Trump/Pence campaign because they support the values she holds dear. "Our military's been decimated by Mr. Obama and I want to see that strengthened. Our veterans are not getting a fair shake in the VA and in their pay – it's being cut."

Immigration and foreign policy are what Bill Toben of Maineville came to hear about. He likes that Donald Trump is a political outsider.

"I like the fact that he wants to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it, of course. He wants to control our borders," says Toben. "I think Hillary Clinton tends to be more of a hawk, and I think she's going to get us in a war with Russia, especially in Syria, and I think Trump is more reasonable on his foreign policy."
