This week on Indiana Newsdesk… Republican Eric Holcomb and Democrat John Gregg are vying to become the next governor of Indiana. We sit down with both candidates and discuss pre-k education, infrastructure, and what they will do if a LGBT rights bill lands on their desks. Statehouse Reporter Brandon Smith joins us to analyze and review the candidates’ policies.

Indiana continues to fight against opioid abuse throughout the state. The Governor’s Drug Task Force met in Scott County this week. Coming up we’ll check in with the Task Force and preview an upcoming documentary from our news team looking at the Heroin epidemic in the Midwest.

Plus we’ll visit a house in Columbus that is receiving a solar panel installation. It’s part of a community effort to produce more clean energy.

Those stories plus the latest headlines from across the state right now on Indiana Newsdesk.
