INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – Tuesday, Governor Eric Holcomb officially filed his candidacy for re-election on Tuesday.
“Indiana is on a roll and we’re not taking our foot off the gas,” said Governor Holcomb. “While the names on the ballot will be Suzanne’s and mine, we’re representing a statewide team that is mobilized, energized and organized for victory in Indiana. Teamwork will bring home the checkered flag on Election Day and teamwork will ensure we’re Putting People First for four more years.”
The announcement follows news last week that Gov. Holcomb closed out 2019 in a record financial position.
The governor’s campaign has $7.25 million cash on hand.
Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody released this statement surrounding news of Gov. Holcomb’s re-election filing:
“Governor Holcomb heads into his reelection owning the dubious distinction of the country’s least known governor. And he’s earned that anonymity with his do-nothing approach on critical issues like the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, the nation’s slowest growing teacher salaries and underfunded public schools. Holcomb is asking Hoosiers for four more years after spending his first three overpromising and under-delivering. Working Hoosiers can’t make rent or pay child care with Holcomb’s empty promises.”
