EDINBURGH, Ind. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Greg Pence is coming under criticism for allowing the sale of objects with racist depictions of African Americans at a sprawling  antiques mall he owns with his wife. The issue has taken on particular significance amid a national reckoning on race. The Exit 76 Antique Mall in Edinburgh, Indiana, has more than 4 million items for sale by the merchants who rent booths from the Pences. Sprinkled throughout the mall are dozens of objects that trade in Jim Crow-era caricatures and stereotypes. Pence's Democratic challenger drew attention to the objects recently.

Gov. Mike Pence says he will discuss the notion with his family and announce his decision sometime after the 2015 legislative session.

Families and private schools get $4,800 per student from the state’s voucher program. Governor Pence's proposal would eliminate that cap entirely.
