Gregg Will Challenge Pence for Indiana Governor

John Gregg (D) “is running again for Indiana governor, this time with a stronger focus on Gov. Mike Pence’s (R) social issues, including the recent ‘religious freedom’ debacle,” the Indianapolis Star reports.

Said Gregg: “The governor had done what he said he wasn’t going to do. I thought he was going to focus on the economy, I thought he was going to focus on creating good paying jobs and improving our education system. He’s focused on nothing but social issues, which was his record in Congress, and those social issues do nothing but divide us.”

Baron Hill Mulls Bid for Indiana Governor

Former Rep. Baron Hill (D-IN) seems serious about running for Indiana governor in 2016, the Southern Indiana News and Tribune reports.

“Hill, 61, who spent five terms in Congress representing southern Indiana, has left his lucrative job with a Washington, D.C., lobbying firm, moved back to Indiana to live full-time, consulted with fellow Democrats, and calculated the financial commitment to knock off an incumbent governor — a feat never done before in Indiana.”
