INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Democratic gubernatorial nominee John Gregg told party faithful at their state convention that Republican Gov. Mike Pence has had his chance and Indiana “cannot stand” to have him as governor for four more years.

The former House Speaker made the remarks in Indianapolis Saturday to address about 2,000 delegates who attended the Democratic Party’s state convention, according to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.

Gregg is facing an expected fierce rematch against Pence, who narrowly beat him in 2012.

Pence signed a religious objections law in March 2015 that critics argued would allow businesses to discriminate against gays and lesbians for religious reasons.

Lawmakers later tweaked that law after groups threatened to boycott the state.
