Zody statement on Melton announcement


INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after State Senator Eddie Melton announced his intention to seek the Democratic nomination for Indiana governor.

“Senator Eddie Melton joins a diverse and talented field for our Party’s nomination and I’m excited about the competition of ideas that will occur as the process plays out. Our Party continues to fight for working families and to raise educators’ pay. With health care costs spiraling out of control and the cost of living on the rise, do-nothing governor Eric Holcomb spent three years with his hands in his pockets. You’re more likely to accurately predict Indiana weather than identify a single notable Holcomb accomplishment. Hoosiers can’t afford another four years of a governor who is unwilling or unable to take on the real challenges facing working families.
