McCormick Crosses Aisle to Run for Governor

(Indianapolis, IN) - A former Republican has entered the race for Governor as a Democrat.


Former State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Jennifer McCormick, will run for the office soon to be left vacant by Eric Holcomb. McCormick was the last elected superintendent before the office became one of appointment by the governor. At that time, she ran as a Republican. She switched parties after leaveing office in 2021.


McCormick stressed civility and mentioned common sense six times in her five-minute announcement Thursday. "Everywhere I visit, no matter where I go, one thing is clear: Hoosiers do not recognize the out-of-touch divisiveness coming out of the statehouse," she said. "They expect a leader who believes in using common sense and bipartisanship to solve problems. They believe in someone who's going to make Indiana the best state that she can be."


McCormick visited South Bend Friday. She joins Bob Kern as Democratic hopefuls for 2024.


Sen. Mike Braun, Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, and Eric Doden are running on the Republican side.
