Indiana Governor Mike Pence is expected to formally announce his 2016 re-election bid at the Indiana Republican Party's Spring Dinner in Indianapolis. Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is set to be the keynote speaker at next month's event.

Statement from Indiana Republican Party Chairman Jeff Cardwell on Pence's expected re-election bid announcement:

“Gov. Mike Pence is a conservative leader and dedicated public servant who always puts Indiana first,” Cardwell said. “Under his leadership, our state's fiscal health is strong and we are outpacing the nation in job growth. In fact, more than 100,000 private sector jobs have been created since Pence took office. He also followed through on his promise to put education first this legislative session by making an historic investment in our children, teachers and schools. We are excited the governor will formally announce his plans to seek re-election during our annual Spring Dinner, and we look forward to hearing his ideas for the future of our great state.”

The dinner is set for Thursday, June 18 at Primo Banquet Hall in Indianapolis.
