(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The favored candidate to earn the Democrat nomination for Indiana governor is gaining the endorsement of three local mayors.
John Gregg is a former Speaker of the Indiana House. He’s formed an exploratory committee for Governor in 2012.
Greeg announced last week he has picked up endorsements from 27 southern Indiana mayors. Included were Lawrenceburg Mayor Bill Cunningham, Batesville’s Rick Fledderman, and Rising Sun’s Bill Marksberry – all Democrats.
“While being a Democrat, he will first and foremost, put politics aside and do what is in the best interest of the people and the State of Indiana. In these days of polarizing government on both the state and national level it is refreshing to see a man like John Gregg step forward to run for Governor of Indiana,” said Fledderman.
“John Gregg will work with Hoosiers from all political backgrounds to strengthen our economy and bring jobs to Indiana,” Marksberry said in his endorsement. “Instead of playing political games, he will focus on things that matter and doing the work of the people. I am happy to endorse him for Governor.”
Congressman Mike Pence (R-Columbus) is widely viewed as the top candidate to win the Republican nomination for Governor in 2012.
