INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Aug. 17, 2015)–State Senator Karen Tallian dropped out of the race for Indiana governor Monday.

By ending her gubernatorial campaign, John Gregg is now the sole Democrat set to face off against Governor Pence.

John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, issued the following statement regarding Sen. Karen Tallian’s decision to suspend her campaign for governor:

“We understand and respect Karen Tallian’s decision. With her dedicated leadership, Hoosier families can have the confidence that she will continue her work to solve today’s problems facing our state. Further, Karen has been a true progressive champion for Indiana. There is no doubt her passion will continue as Democrats across the state will lead the charge to unite and improve the overall well-being of all Hoosier families and the state of Indiana.”

On August 7, State Superintendent Glenda Ritz also ended her campaign.

Tallian, as of July 16, had trailed the other candidates in terms of money raised. The Ritz campaign had raised $30,529 in six months. In that same time frame, John Gregg raised $1.76 million. Governor Pence had raised $1.63 million. Tallian had raised $23,751.
