John Gregg says Eric Holcomb seeking “consolation prize”

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Democratic candidate for governor John Gregg is pushing his economic plan.

Gregg toured a north side computer software company Wednesday to talk about the need for more high tech jobs.

Gregg said Indiana can do more to help cover training expenses in the technology sector.

After the tour he spelled out differences between himself and GOP candidate Eric Holcomb. He said he wants to serve as governor while Holcomb wants simply to be governor.

“I’ve only been a candidate for one statewide office and I think my opponent been a candidate for three statewide offices in the last four months,” he said. “The job of governor is a very important job. It’s not a consolation prize.”

Gregg is also attracting national TV coverage because his race is now targeted by the Democratic Governors Association.
