Governor Pence to run for re-election, formal announcement to come next month
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 18, 2015)– Governor Mike Pence plans to formally announce his 2016 re-election bid next month.
Party officials say Pence will make that announcement at the Indiana Republican party’s spring dinner on June 18.
The dinner will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Primo Banquet Hall in Indianapolis. Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam will be the keynote speaker.
Indiana Republican Party Chairman Jeff Cardwell issued the following 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.”
