gubernatorial race

Dr. Woody Myers and former Rep. Linda Lawson are effusive in their praise for each other as they begin to campaign as the Indiana Democrats’ gubernatorial ticket.

Myers has been the Democrats’ presumptive nominee for governor for three months, after his primary opponents dropped out. But the state party’s central committee had to postpone the deadline for Myers to name his running mate after no name had been secured.

Sen. Eddie Melton (D-Gary) dropped out of the governor’s race Monday.

That leaves two Democrats looking to unseat Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb.

Sen. Eddie Melton (D-Gary) officially kicked off his run for governor Tuesday after months of exploring a bid.

Gov. Eric Holcomb could get a primary challenge next year.

Brian Roth, a Republican from Carmel, filed paperwork this week to run.

Roth runs a leadership consulting firm in the affluent Indianapolis suburb. He filed paperwork for a gubernatorial run with the Indiana Election Division, though he’s not commenting on his potential bid.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Eric Holcomb unveiled his education plan Monday during the annual meeting of Indiana school boards and local superintendents.

He proposes using a combination of  federal, state, parental and private dollars to expanding the state's preschool program.

But he stops short of seeking universal pre-k.

Holcomb also wants teachers to feel they have a say in state policy discussions.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Eric Holcomb unveiled the first policy proposals of his campaign, including economic development, infrastructure and energy initiatives.

The proposals were short on the specifics of funding:

Many of Lieutenant Governor Holcomb’s proposals are the continuation of initiatives begun by Gov. Mike Pence.

This includes a $1 billion entrepreneurship plan, a new port, a new bridge over the Ohio River, and growing the Regional Cities program.
