Josh Owens Qualifies for Governor’s Race but Withdraws from the Race, Endorses Myers

Josh Owens Statement on his decision to withdraw:

I got into this race because I believe Indiana needs a bigger, bolder, more inclusive vision for every Hoosier, one not rooted in our last 200 years, but in our next 200. Over the past several months, we’ve earned the support and trust of thousands of Hoosiers who agree.

During this primary, I’ve had many discussions with Dr. Woody Myers about the future of Indiana and the desperate need for new leadership in the Governor’s office. While we have some differences, I’m encouraged that like me, he’s not a career politician. Dr. Myers brings an outsider’s perspective to our politics, which is urgently needed.

One of the things Dr. Myers and I have agreed on is the need to avoid a divisive Democratic Primary. As of today, I will be suspending my campaign and supporting Dr. Myers as he becomes the presumptive Democratic nominee for governor.

Our state needs a champion for public school teachers and students in every community. Our state needs a leader who will act on universal background checks and climate change innovation. And our state needs an executive who will protect all Hoosiers, and one who represents the diversity of our great state and will bring new inclusive voices to the table.

Dr. Myers has the experience, the background, and the vision for success that Indiana deserves. I am proud to be supporting him as he takes our fight into the November election.
