KNIGHTSTOWN - Governor Eric Holcomb is set to make what is being called a "major announcement" Saturday at the historic Hoosier Gym in Knightstown. The specifics of the announcement have not been released, however there is heavy speculation that the governor will announce his bid for re-election.

"In every corner of the state, Hoosiers know that they have a friend and ally in Governor Eric Holcomb," Kyle Hupfer, treasurer of the Eric Holcomb for Indiana campaign, said in a news release. "That's because he's focused on tackling our biggest challenges, lifting up Hoosiers' lives and delivering results. His people-first leadership has earned Indiana incredible momentum, which will be on full focus at this event. We invite all Hoosiers to come and be a part of it."

Earlier this week, former Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Woody Myers announced his plans to run for the Democratic nomination for governor. State Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary) has formed an exploratory committee as he contemplates also running for the office.
