• Dem. Gubernatorial Candidate John Gregg to announce his running mate this afternoon

    May 22, 2012 No comments

    Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg is ready to announce his running mate.

    The former Indiana house speaker is scheduled to unveil his pick at the Statehouse Tuesday afternoon. 

    Multiple sources say that Gregg will choose State Sen. Vi Simpson of Bloomington. 

    Simpson briefly ran for governor in 2004 and most recently led Senate Democrats in battle against right-to-work legislation. 

    Gregg’s announcement will follow one day after Republican candidate Mike Pence added state Rep. Sue Ellspermann to his ticket. Pence said Monday he tapped the freshman lawmaker for her experience as a business consultant and economic development official. 

    Gregg derided Pence’s pick for her support for defunding Planned Parenthood.

    Gregg, Pence and Libertarian Rupert Boneham are running in the November general election.
