Pence to announce re-election bid

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Governor Mike Pence is expected to announce his re-election bid next month.

The Indiana Republican Party said Monday that Pence is expected to make the announcement official on June 18 at the Indiana Republican Party’s Spring Dinner.

Indiana Republican Party Chairman Jeff Cardwell issued this statement:

Gov. Mike Pence is a conservative leader and dedicated public servant who always puts Indiana first,” Cardwell said. “Under his leadership, our state’s fiscal health is strong and we are outpacing the nation in job growth. In fact, more than 100,000 private sector jobs have been created since Pence took office. He also followed through on his promise to put education first this legislative session by making an historic investment in our children, teachers and schools. We are excited the governor will formally announce his plans to seek re-election during our annual Spring Dinner, and we look forward to hearing his ideas for the future of our great state.”
