A third Democrat announced his candidacy Tuesday in the race for Indiana Governor in 2020. Democratic state senator, Eddie Melton of Gary, formally entered the Indiana governor’s race with the state’s Republican schools chief expected by his side.
Melton told a Northwest Indiana newspaper that he is joining the 2020 race because most people feel that the Republican-led state government is not focusing on issues like increased education funding and health care access that matter the most.
Melton’s campaign says Republican state schools Superintendent Jennifer McCormick will join in the announcement. McCormick drew the attention of top Republicans when she joined Melton at several public meetings over the summer as he considered entering the governor’s race.
