INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Eric Holcomb’s reelection campaign announced today that its statewide army of volunteers has contacted more than one million Hoosier voters this election cycle supporting his reelection and Republican candidates up and down the ballot. Reaching this many voters in such a rapid time is a demonstration of the strength, organization, and enthusiasm of the governor’s campaign team.
“Governor Holcomb preaches teamwork and what his campaign team has accomplished thus far is truly extraordinary,” said Kyle Hupfer, campaign manager. “We’re not taking a single vote for granted. Governor Holcomb and Lt. Governor Crouch have provided Hoosiers exceptional leadership during these trying times and our supporters are doing what it takes to earn four more years.”
Reaching more than 1 million voters is just the latest major campaign milestone for the Holcomb campaign. Earlier in the election cycle, the governor’s team was the quickest campaign in recent memory to collect enough signatures to be on the ballot, collecting double the required signatures from all 92 counties by October 2019.
The COVID-19 pandemic altered campaigning in many ways, including limiting door-to-door opportunities and most in-person events. The pandemic also put the governor’s honest, transparent, and data-driven leadership on full display for Hoosiers, and they’ve liked what they’ve seen. The governor’s approach has earned statewide and bipartisan praise, with Hoosiers rating his leadership during this pandemic with a 76% approval rating.
“We’re not done. In many ways, we’re just getting started,” added Hupfer. “The governor knows this is a long race and we intend to keep the pedal to the metal until the checkered flag is waved. Our volunteers are already well on the way to reaching our second million.”
Governor Holcomb’s campaign reported a strong $7.1 million cash on hand at the end of March, the most recent finance deadline.
