The first candidate to enter the governor's race is Republican Jim Wallace.

Next year‘s race for governor has its first candidate.   Former Hamilton County Councilman Jim Wallace says he intends to seek the Republican nomination. Wallace says the next governor needs a business background to continue Indiana‘s record of keeping spending under control. Wallace owns an Indianapolis financing firm for insurance companies, after stints as an executive with Wellpoint and Conseco Health.

Sixth District Congressman Mike Pence is widely expected to seek the GOP nomination as well, after ruling out a run for President. Potential Democratic candidates include Second District Congressman Joe Donnelly, outgoing Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel and former Eighth District Congressman Brad Ellsworth.
