Indiana State Sen. Karen Tallian announced Monday she is withdrawing from the race for governor. The Democrat is the second candidate to leave the gubernatorial race. Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz withdrew her candidacy earlier this month.

Former House Speaker John Gregg managed to out-fundraise the incumbent through June by a little more than $100,000.
