    Why No Democratic Debate Watch Party? We want to clarify that there will not be a watch party for a Democratic gubernatorial debate, as Jennifer McCormick is the sole candidate on the 2024 Democratic Primary ballot. This follows the Indiana Election Commission’s decision that Tamie Dixon-Tatum did not qualify for the May primary ballot due to insufficient signature collection.

    This event comes at a crucial time, as a recent poll reported that 43.3% of Hoosier Republicans remain undecided on which Republican gubernatorial candidate they will support in the upcoming May primary.
