Just two days after U.S. Senator Dan Coats announced he won’t seek reelection next year, a contender is throwing his hat into the ring.
Eric Holcomb steered former Governor Mitch Daniels’ 2008 reelection campaign, led the Indiana Republican Party and most recently served as State Chief of Staff to Senator Dan Coats.
But Thursday, Holcomb announced a personal first: a run for office.
“And that’s why today, ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud, I’m excited," says Holcomb, "to announce my candidacy for the United States Senate.”
