The Democrats have a new official 2020 gubernatorial candidate. Yesterday, state Sen. Eric Melton (D-Gary) formally announced his candidacy at a campaign event. Introducing the Senator to his supporters was State Education Superintendent Jennifer McCormick, a Republican who has been at odds with her own party leadership. Many believe that Sen. Melton will attempt to form a unity ticket with Ms. McCormick since Indiana is a ticket state, and Sen. Melton did not rule out such a possibility.
The Gary area state legislator joins former state Health Commissioner Woody Myers and online retail company owner Josh Owens in the Democratic field. The winner of next May’s partisan primary will undoubtedly face first term Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) who is seeking a second term.
