  • Gov. Holcomb files for reelection
    “Indiana is on a roll and we’re not taking our foot off the gas. 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.” - Gov. Eric Holcomb, in filing for reelection at the Indiana secretary of state's office Tuesday morning. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Josh Owens reacted, saying, "We got into this race because we believe Indiana needs bold leadership and fresh ideas. As we travel the state, we're hearing that Hoosiers agree with us that our teachers need and deserve support now, not later and that we need to do more than simply maintain a status quo when it comes to the environment and ensuring that Indiana is a state that welcomes all. We don't just need more jobs, we need good paying jobs and ways for Hoosiers to get the skills and training needed for them. We're in the final stages of qualifying for the ballot and will soon be turning our full energy to listening to Hoosiers everywhere and fundraising to support spreading our message to every corner of the state to win this election."

  • Pence, Holcomb, Buttigieg head 2020 HPI Power 50
    By BRIAN A. HOWEY in Indianapolis
    and MARK SCHOEFF JR., 
    in Washington

    As we unveil the 2020 version of the Howey Politics Indiana Power 50 List, Hoosiers appear to be relatively satisfied with their state government, unsure about the federals and specifically President Trump, and are most concerned about health care and the economy.

    These are the latest survey numbers from the We Ask America Poll conducted in early December for the Indiana Manufacturers Association. They accentuate the formulation of our annual Power 50 list headed by Vice President Mike Pence, Gov. Eric Holcomb, former South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg, and the state’s two Republican senators who will likely sit in judgment (and acquittal) of President Trump in an impeachment trial later this month. 

    As Pence appears to be heading off thinly veiled attempts by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to get him off the 2020 ticket, Hoosiers by 47.4% approve to 47.7% disapprove of President Trump’s job performance. This is consistent with 2019 polling by Ball State University and Morning Consult. On the national right/wrong track, just 37% of registered voters in Indiana feel that the country is headed in the right direction, while a majority, 52%, say that things have gotten off on the wrong track, including 51% of independents and 26% of Republicans. Among female voters, the right/wrong track split is 29%/58%.
