John Gregg

Indiana’s Democratic candidate for governor wants increased protections and assistance for at-risk children. Former House Speaker John Gregg is criticizing outgoing Republican Governor Mitch Daniels for putting too much emphasis on cost-saving.

With the addition of two women to gubernatorial tickets, it’s almost guaranteed that the next duo to run Indiana will be a man and a woman — for the third consecutive time. Republican candidate Mike Pence toured the state Monday with his choice for lieutenant governor: state Rep. Sue Ellspermann. The pair said they will focus on economic development if elected in November and said her candidacy is not about attracting female voters, but about choosing the best candidate.
