A third Republican is mulling a campaign for governor. Former Attorney General Steve Carter is assessing whether to run and what his chances of winning would be if he did. Carter hasn’t indicated when he’ll make a decision, but points out that state law prohibits any fundraising for a campaign until the legislative session wraps up at the end of April.
Former Hamilton County Councilman Jim Wallace plans to seek the GOP nomination and Sixth District Congressman Mike Pence has been publicly weighing a run, after announcing he would not run for President. Republican incumbent Mitch Daniels is barred from seeking a third consecutive term.
