Gov. Eric Holcomb, joined by hundreds of supporters from across Indiana, officially announced his bid for re-election.

The Republican governor made the announcement in Knightstown’s iconic Hoosier Gym, made famous as the filming location of the Hickory Huskers’ home court in the 1986 film “Hoosiers.”

“I’m Indiana proud … in part because of our heritage and the progress we’ve made together over this last decade-plus, and where that has us heading in the decade to come. And that … is why I’m running for reelection,” Holcomb said amid cheers for “four more years” from listeners. “Let’s keep making Hoosier history for four more years.”

The economy, jobs, infrastructure, public health and education are all doing well in the Hoosier state, Holcomb said. 

“Here in Indiana, we’ve become a leader, not just across the country, but around the world,” said Holcomb, a Vincennes native. “And we’ve done it the right way, the Indiana way, by putting people first.”
