Rothenberg & Gonzales Moves INGov Race to a “Toss Up”

INDIANAPOLIS – The governor’s race continues to “slip away from Republicans” as now another political organization has called Indiana’s gubernatorial race a “Toss Up.” This time, a new rating by the Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report, upgraded from its previous “Lean R” rating, comes as a new independent Monmouth Poll has John Gregg with a twelve point lead over Eric Holcomb.

Simply put, Hoosiers are fed up with the direction Eric Holcomb and Statehouse Republicans have steered Indiana over the last four years. They are tired of politicians like Holcomb putting his political agenda ahead of Hoosiers’ well-being.

“Today’s rating shows what we already know: Hoosiers feel the state is going in the wrong direction. And, under Eric Holcomb, the state would only continue to follow the last four years and the extreme agenda that has damaged our economy and reputation,” said Drew Anderson, communications director. “Middle class families have fallen behind under the Pence-Holcomb Administration because they have chosen to put their out-of-touch agenda ahead of common sense ideas. Hoosiers are fed up and are ready to vote for John Gregg in November.”

This latest analysis is further proof that the out-of-touch ideology of Eric Holcomb and Statehouse Republicans is causing long-term damage on the state. Last month, Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ballmoved the governor’s race to “Toss Up.” And previously,Cook Political Report and GOVERNING Magazine upgraded the race as a “Toss up.”

Needless to say, the failed record of Eric Holcomb and Statehouse Republicans has caused the Statehouse GOP to spiral out of control, and Hoosiers are now more than ever dissatisfied. In fact, they want to go in a new direction because the Holcomb ideology is just not getting the job done for them.
