“Eric Holcomb won this election because he’s a proven leader who is committed to building upon Indiana’s already strong foundation,” said RGA Chair Governor Susana Martinez. “As governor, Eric will continue Indiana’s legacy of sound fiscal management, job creation, and economic success. The Republican Governors Association is proud to congratulate Governor-Elect Eric Holcomb on his victory.”
The RGA spent over $10 million on the effort to elect Eric Holcomb as governor, including $6.75 million in contributions directly to his campaign, a multi-million dollar TV ad campaign statewide, 2.5 million pieces of direct mail, and a targeted digital ad campaign which had over 10 million impressions. The RGA also assisted the campaign’s field program, which knocked on 1.7 million doors and made 5.6 million volunteer phone calls. The RGA ran 4 TV ads targeting Democrat John Gregg as a wasteful spending, tax loving former lobbyist who chose Hillary over Hoosiers.
