John Gregg and Christina Hale officially accepted their nominations this weekend to be Democratic nominees for governor and lieutenant governor.
The Gregg campaign’s 35-point plan includes building a skilled workforce, growing small businesses and streamlining economic development efforts.
More than 1,600 delegates chose nominees for Governor, Lt. Governor, State Superintendent and Attorney General at the Indiana Republican Party convention.
Gregg says naming Hale as his running mate was a governing decision, not a political one, and that her gender wasn’t a factor.
Both parties have nominated a woman for Lt. Gov. in every election since 2004. Republicans will break that streak this year with Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb.
Experts say the intensified exposure to political issues and candidates could impact what happens in November.
Without last minute support from a national group, Pence would’ve been outraised by nearly two-to-one.
The Republican incumbent raised about $3.5 million dollars in the last six months, nearly as much as Gregg raised in all of 2015.
Indiana Democrats appear to have locked up John Gregg as their nominee for governor as challengers have fallen away in recent weeks.
Sen. Karen Tallian's decision leaves John Gregg as the sole Democrat still in the race for governor.
