John Gregg to Reprise Gubernatorial Run in 2016
While there has been some speculation as to whether John Gregg would run again for governor, Ross Schulz with the Corydon Democrat has confirmed that Gregg has decided to give it another try.

Gregg’s announcement may set the record for earliest campaign announcement in history, as the governor has only been elected to a four-year term for a relatively short period of time (originally they were elected to two-year terms).
While this will keep the attention on Gregg, who has a knack for attracting the limelight, it will cast a cloud over newly elected Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz, who was situated to increase her profile substantially as the only Democrat holding state-wide office and whose responsibilities overlapped with a number of Governor Mike Pence’s priorities.
