Fort Wayne Republican Announces Bid For 2024 Governor's Race


The 2024 race for Indiana governor is officially underway. Republican Eric Doden announced Thursday he’s running for the state’s highest office.

Doden said he’s forming a campaign committee in a bid for governor because he has a passion for “growing Indiana main streets.”

The Fort Wayne businessman previously served as then-Gov. Mike Pence’s Indiana Economic Development Corporation president.

In a statement announcing his campaign, Doden said he’ll bring his “no-nonsense” approach to the race, helping create “21st century economic opportunities” for Indiana families.

The seat is open in 2024 – Gov. Eric Holcomb is term-limited.
