IDP Statement on Eric Holcomb’s Inauguration as Indiana’s 51st Governor


INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after Eric Holcomb was sworn in during a Monday ceremony at the State Fairgrounds.

“As a Hoosier, I want to offer best wishes to our new governor as he comes into office. I hope today will mark a much-needed new era for Hoosiers. It will be imperative that Governor Holcomb rise above Mike Pence’s shadow and not surrender to the out-of-touch ideologies of the GOP supermajorities. Indiana cannot bear another RFRA or a law that endangers Hoosier women and their families. Instead, we must address lagging wages for our workers, our crumbling infrastructure system, and a lackluster Pre-K program. There is still much to do to make sure Indiana is a leader in the 21st Century. But in order to accomplish this goal, we must always remember that Hoosier Common Sense will always prevail over party lines and ideology.”


Let’s elect more Hoosier Democrats
We can't sit this one out.
