2016 Gubernatorial Races: August Happenings in Review

INDIANA: In 2008, Democrat Jim Schellinger unsuccessfully sought the nod to run for Governor. Some expected him to enter the race in 2016. However, Mike Pence recently appointed him to the Indiana Economic Development Corporation which all but takes him out of the gubernatorial picture. Keep your enemies close, or just bad politics?


Wouldn’t a crowded Democratic primary favor Pence? Meanwhile, as soon as she was in, she’s out: Glenda Ritz dropped out of the Governor’s sweepstakes and will seek reelection as State Superintendent. Last month, I outlined her fundraising problem and possible civil fines. Seems they were the deciding factor. She then endorsed John Gregg in the Democratic primary. But then Gregg’s other opponent- Karen Tallian- dropped out of the race citing a lack of fundraising. Although she refused to endorse Gregg, some believe she may end up as his running mate.
