Indiana will select a U.S. Senator in 2024, and some Hoosiers want Republican Governor Eric Holcomb to run.

At least two candidates, Republican Erik Benson and Progressive Party candidate Marshall Travis, have declared plans to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Mike Braun, who filed paperwork last week to run for governor of Indiana in 2024.

Due to term restrictions, Holcomb, who is currently in his second term as governor, is ineligible to compete for reelection.

On Tuesday, Holcomb answered questions about a prospective candidacy for Congress, his first public appearance since being hospitalized with pneumonia and norovirus.

Holcomb made his first public appearance since being hospitalized with pneumonia on Tuesday. When questioned about a prospective run for Congress, the governor indicated he is focused on the upcoming statehouse session.

Holcomb’s tenure as governor will expire in January 2025.

The Indiana General Assembly’s next session is scheduled to begin on January 9, 2023, at 1:30 p.m.

I’d replace RINO Todd Young with RINO Holcomb in a heartbeat, but I think replacing Mike Braun with Holcomb is a step down. Holcomb really blew it with the COVID mandates and his political infighting against our elected representatives to maintain his lockdowns.

Hopefully we get someone better than our establishment GOP hacks on the ballot.

This Hoosier doesn’t want Crown Prince Eric the Chinless Wonder of Hoosierland to run for anything except to a job he is qualified to hold. Not sure what that is but know it isn’t a job where he has any power over me.
