Jennifer McCormick, an outspoken voice for education issues in the state and former state superintendent of public instruction, says she will be running for Governor in the next election.

McCormick was the last person to hold the title of State Superintendent before it became a position appointed by the governor within the new State Secretary of Education office.

Now in her push to run for governor, her campaign says “she will bring common sense and bipartisanship back to the statehouse.”

“There is a lot at stake in Indiana today,” she said in a campaign video. “I got (to the statehouse) to support our schools, improve accountability, protect our tax dollars, and assure every child gets a quality education. But, too many of our statehouse politicians were focused on their own agendas.”

McCormick intends to run as a Democrat after having been a Republican while serving as State Superintendent. She joins Bob Kern as the only two candidates to announce a run for governor on thee Democratic ticket in 2024.

She may have had an R after her name but she was never a Republican. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Just another Democrat in Republican clothing. Ran on a party ticket that got her elected and now all of the sudden she is switching parties? Uh huh

Her declared policies will work 100% counter to the goals she is running on. She’s either clueless or lying.
