John Gregg has announced he will not seek the Democratic nomination for governor in 2016.
Gregg lost to Mike Pence in the 2012 Governor’s race. Gregg's campaign focused on bipartisanship.
During the campaign, Gregg faulted Pence for voting against the auto company bailout plan in Congress, calling that a vote against investing in American workers. Gregg said Pence focused too much on divisive social issues during his 12-years in Congress.
The announcement leaves the spot wide open for Indiana Democrats. There has been some speculation about State School Superintendent Glenda Ritz, who is the sole Democrat holding an elected position in state government.
