John Gregg

A leading Indiana environmental organization won’t endorse in the gubernatorial race because it doesn’t have “enthusiastic support” for plans put forward by either Republican Eric Holcomb or Democrat John Gregg.

Steve Francis is the political chair of the Hoosier chapter of the Sierra Club. He says Indiana’s environmental issues – for instance, its reliance on coal and health issues created by poor air quality – have been ignored by the current administration.

Indiana Democrats on Saturday slated their candidates for the November 8 general election.

John Gregg and Christina Hale officially accepted their nominations for governor and lieutenant governor, respectively. 

Gregg, a former Indiana House speaker, and Hale, a state representative, laid out their own proposals and backgrounds as they addressed more than two thousand delegates at the Democratic state convention in Indianapolis

But they talked more about what they call the failings of the Pence administration.

The Republican candidate for governor is making another push for support from members of the Lafayette community.

Mike Pence stopped in the city Friday afternoon to meet with voters leading up to Election Day, Tuesday.

He says the state is moving in the right direction, but believes his vision will build the state’s economic momentum even more.
