INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – Governor Eric Holcomb’s campaign announced on Monday that he has enough signatures to be on the May 2020 Republican ballot for governor.
“Today’s news is proof that this campaign is organized, mobilized and energized throughout our entire state,” said Kyle Hupfer, Eric Holcomb for Indiana campaign manager. “In what feels like record time, our statewide team – powered by our strong local Republican Party leaders, our field staff, county coordinators and volunteers – have collected more than enough signatures to get Governor Holcomb on the ballot next year. It’s a credit to the excellent relationships Governor Holcomb has built throughout Indiana that our grassroots network and campaign infrastructure is now up-and-running more than a year before next year’s election.”
According to the Indianapolis Star, Republican Brian Roth plans to challenge Holcomb in the primary.
Several Democratic candidates have declared as well, including State Senator Eddie Melton, Woody Myers, and Josh Owens.
