INDIANA (WFIE) - COVID-19 and funding for Hoosier schools were hot topics during the Indiana gubernatorial debate Tuesday night.

Governor Eric Holcomb took some heat during the debate over his coronavirus pandemic orders.

Democrat Candidate Woody Myers also criticized the governor, saying he’s been too passive in the state’s response to the pandemic.

Libertarian Candidate Donald Rainwater opposed Holcomb’s statewide mask mandate.

The governor, however, fired back, saying his actions were needed during a public health emergency.
