Statement from former Indiana Gov. Evan Bayh regarding the 2016 gubernatorial race

INDIANAPOLIS — Former Indiana Gov. Evan Bayh released the following statement today regarding the 2016 gubernatorial race:


“Serving as Governor of Indiana has been the greatest honor of my life. Working with many wonderful people from both political parties, our administration fostered economic growth, fiscal stability, and educational, environmental and social progress.

“Over the years I’ve been asked whether I would seek the Governorship again. The inquiries and encouragement have accelerated in recent months regarding a possible candidacy in 2016. After serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be a candidate for Governor in 2016. I hope that my decision will enable others to step forward and offer their ideas for making Indiana an even better place to live, work and raise a family.

“I remain committed to helping Hoosiers and the state I love. There are many ways to help people and serve the public, and I look forward to pursuing them in the days and years to come. Susan, Beau, and Nick join me in expressing our profound gratitude to the many Hoosiers who have blessed us with their friendship and support.”
