Governor Holcomb Earns Endorsement of Indiana Fraternal Order of Police

Governor Stands with Indiana Law Enforcement

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) today announced their endorsement of Governor Eric Holcomb for a second term. This is the organization’s first endorsement of a Republican in a governor’s race since 2008.

“Over the last four years, our team has had the opportunity to work alongside Governor Holcomb, and we’re gotten to know him as a man of character and friend to our state’s law enforcement professionals,” said Bill Owensby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police. “He stands with us as we stand for safe Indiana communities – and we’re proud to endorse him for reelection.”

The Indiana FOP represents more than 13,000 law enforcement professionals serving communities across Indiana. The organization’s mission is to protect and serve Indiana law enforcement professionals as they in turn work to serve Hoosiers and keep Indiana communities safe.

Governor Holcomb actively supports Indiana’s brave law enforcement and public safety officers who keep Hoosiers safe throughout the state, having already earned the endorsements of the Indiana State Police Alliance and the Indiana Professional Firefighters PAC.

“Indiana’s law enforcement officers put their lives on a thin line blue line daily, selflessly dropping everything whenever duty calls,” said Governor Holcomb. “They spring into action, putting themselves into harm’s way – and as Hoosiers, we are forever grateful. I’m committed to standing with our law enforcement, now, and always.”

The Indiana FOP is the tenth group to endorse Governor Holcomb this election cycle. This endorsement follows announcements so far from the Indy Chamber, the Indiana Manufacturers Association, the Indiana REALTORS® PAC, the Indiana Professional Firefighters PAC, the Indiana State Building and Construction Trades, the Northwestern Indiana Building and Construction Trades Council, the Indiana Builders Association, the National Federation of Independent Business, the Indiana State Police Alliance, and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
