Wallace ends Indiana governor bid after ballot denial

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis businessman Jim Wallace has ended his longshot bid for the Republican nomination for governor after being denied a spot on the ballot.

The Wallace campaign on Thursday posted a statement from Wallace saying he was suspending his campaign less than a week after the Indiana Election Commission voted to remove his name from May primary ballot because he fell 14 signatures short of the required number in one congressional district.

Wallace says it's clear that further efforts to get on the ballot would jeopardize a timely election. He was the only GOP challenger to U.S. Rep. Mike Pence for the nomination.

Wallace runs Indianapolis-based TWG Capital, which provides loans to insurance agents.

A West Point and Harvard University graduate, he worked at Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield as vice president of strategy in the early 1990s and as chief of staff at Conseco Health in the late 1990s before founding TWG.

  • Ouch
    That's simply awful. Worse yet, for the second time in my voting career I will vote for a Democrat. I will NEVER vote for Mike Pence. Maybe next time Wallace. And ofcourse without my vote, Pence will still be our next Governor. He will try pick on Mexicans. I've always wanted to ask Pence if he thinks his God is against Mexicans too.

    It appears to me that the Indiana Republican Party does not want Mike Pence to have any competition.
  • Pence
    Pence in a landslide this November.
  • UH HUH
    So Wallace (not the choice of the "Daniels" doesn't get on the ballot becasue he didn't get the required signatures, but Santorum, (choice of the "Daniels") does make it with our the requisite signatures.
    Indiana politics at its worst

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
