Michelle Lee referenced the fundraiser Pence held for Pete Stauber on Wednesday. Lee says it wasn't appropriate that the event was closed to the news media and that it was held at a secret location. 

She says she sees this as a problem with the Stauber campaign.

"I think that we need to be transparent in where we're raising our money, and what I have seen in this primary is there's a lot of outside money coming in to convince the voters of the eighth district who to vote for," said Lee.

Lee encourages everyone to vote in next Tuesday's primary election whether you are Republican or Democrat. She says it is important so that democracy remains successful.
