John Gregg's Gubernatorial Campaign Swingin Into Action
Former House Speaker John Gregg (D) kicks off the announcement he has filed an exploratory campaign to seek the 2012 Democratic nomination for Indiana governor with the release of this video. A relaxed Gregg is sitting on a front porch swing with a glass of iced tea with lemon next to him and the Indiana flag blowing in the breeze behind him. The short pep talk is obviously geared towards stereotypical Hoosier values. His home is in "Sandburn", not Sandborn. He derides "Warshington", not Washington. And he's been "travelin", not traveling the state. The only things missing are the fresh-baked apple pie and the sound of country music star John Anderson singing his 1983 hit song, "Swingin," in the background.
