ROANOKE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Indiana Congressman Mike Pence believes the state will prevail in a lawsuit over the new school voucher program.

The republican was in Roanoke last night. He commented on the Indiana teachers union suit, which claims the state's voucher program unconstitutionally funnels public money to private religious schools.

U.S. Rep. Mike Pence/(R) 6th District: "The fact that's being challanged in court is predictable but I'm confident that Indiana has crafted a way that reflects the appropriate seperation of church and state."

Pence, a candidate for governor, was the guest speaker during Roanoke's annual 4th of July Patriotic Pops concert.
