Holcomb avoids questioning about possible 2024 U.S. Senate run

Governor Eric Holcomb

INDIANAPOLIS (Network Indiana) – Indiana will select a U.S. Senator in 2024, and some Hoosiers want Republican Governor Eric Holcomb to run.

At least two candidates, Republican Erik Benson and Progressive Party candidate Marshall Travis, have declared plans to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Mike Braun, who filed paperwork last week to run for governor of Indiana in 2024.

Due to term restrictions, Holcomb, who is currently in his second term as governor, is ineligible to compete for reelection.

Holcomb made his first public appearance since being hospitalized with pneumonia on Tuesday. When questioned about a prospective run for Congress, the governor indicated he is focused on the upcoming statehouse session.

Holcomb’s tenure as governor will expire in January 2025.

The Indiana General Assembly’s next session is scheduled to begin on January 9, 2023, at 1:30 p.m.


  1. Of course Crown Prince Eric the Chinless Wonder of Hoosierville avoids answering questions about his political future. His whole life has been one political position after another. Had he not been Lt. Gov I doubt he could have gotten elected all on his own in the first place. State Police Commissioner Doug Carter likely plans to run for some office. Both men are weak. We deserve much better for our leaders. Remember, we get the leaders we vote for.
