Gregg pondering 2nd run for Indiana governor

---- —

INDIANAPOLIS — Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg is pondering another run at the state's top job, but has yet to make a decision.

Gregg narrowly lost to Republican Gov. Mike Pence last November despite the state's Republican tilt. But Gregg said Wednesday he hasn't decided whether it's worth another run.

The Corydon Democrat reported Wednesday that Gregg told Democrats in Harrison County that he wanted to "keep going" following two years on the campaign trail. But Gregg said that was a lighthearted response to the local Democratic chairman's insistence that Gregg should be governor.

Still, Gregg has given every indication he's interested in the job he almost won. He has traversed the state in the last few months speaking at local fundraisers and gauging support among Democratic activists.
