ANDERSON — Brad Chambers stressed economic growth during a stop in Anderson as a kickoff to his gubernatorial campaign.
Chambers resigned as state commercial secretary and head of the Indiana Economic Development Corp. last month to seek the Republican Party gubernatorial nomination in the 2024 primary election.
He joined U.S. Senator Mike Braun, Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and Fort Wayne businessman Eric Doden in the race.
“There is enormous potential for our state,” Chambers said Tuesday of his decision to run for governor. “I’ve never been a politician. I’ve never run for political office.
Chambers said the number one job of governor is to grow the state’s economy.
