For Governor Holcomb, Monday’s event at the museum was a bit of a homecoming.

“Well, it’s pretty sentimental for me," Governor Holcomb said. "I served in the - I just took a tour here, and I saw a lot of Army and Navy banners. I served in the United States Navy, and I was stationed overseas and moved back to the state of Indiana when I got out of the Navy to Vincennes, Indiana, and went to work in Evansville, Indiana.”

The Republican incumbent is running against Democratic candidate Dr. Woody Myers and Libertarian Donald Rainwater.
