Indiana GOP state Rep. Jon Elrod has dropped his longshot bid for Congress in a strongly Democratic district in Indianapolis, instead announcing he'll run for reelection. Elrod (whoops) missed the May primary for his current position, so local Republicans will have to caucus to nominate him.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
