Dems Endorse McCormick; GOP Has 6 Choices

Former Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick

No competition for Indiana Democrats in the May Primary

Indiana’s Democratic Party has endorsed a candidate for governor, while the state’s G.O.P. has six candidates to consider. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The state Democratic Party has officially endorsed former Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick.

The move comes after another Democrat, Tamie Dixon-Tatum of Anderson, failed to get enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.

Meanwhile, Indiana Republicans will have a half-dozen candidates in the May Primary.

The top G.O.P. candidates include Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch of Evansville, U.S. Senator Mike Braun of Jasper, and developer Eric Doden of Ft. Wayne.

All three had at least $1 million in their campaign chests at the end of 2023.

The other three candidates had less. They are former president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation Brad Chambers, former Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, and Indianapolis mother Jamie Reitenour.

Indiana’s primary election is set for May 7th.
