Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb has secured another four years as the governor of the Hoosier State.

Holcomb's victory in the Indiana gubernatorial race was called just after polls closed at 6:00 p.m., with only 7% of votes accounted for.

With record voter turnout, Gov. Holcomb swept both candidates, holding 57.53% of votes, trailed by Democratic candidate Woodrow Myers' 29.98%, and Donald Rainwater's 12.49%.

"Let me just say at the outset that I had a very good conversation with Dr. Myers, and I thanked him for stepping up and stepping forward and offering an option - offering a real contribution for the conversation we're having as Hoosiers," Holcomb said Tuesday night.

Holcomb went into his campaign for governor with a huge fundraising advantage.

In March, Holcomb became a regular on television sets all throughout Indiana, as he delivered COVID-19 updates to Hoosiers around the state. Following Tuesday night's election, he says he plans to deliver his weekly update as per usual on Wednesday.
