John Gregg Becomes A Grocer

The Democrats' unsuccessful candidate for governor in 2012 has purchased a small grocery story in the town of Bluffton. According to the AP, Gregg hopes his purchases of Yagles Country Cupboard "will help provide more services to the largely Amish southern Indiana community and create a few jobs." Speculation persists that Gregg plans to seek the Democratic gubernatorial nomination again in 2016. This reminds me of George McGovern buying a small hotel in Connecticut before he sought the Democratic nomination for president again in 1984 to build his life experiences resume'. The hotel later fell into bankruptcy and closed down.

How is this supposed to ""will help provide more services to the largely Amish southern Indiana community and create a few jobs.""
Last time I checked, Bluffton was in the NE part of the state, south of Ft. Wayne.

The store is in Daviess County about 15 miles from his home in Sandborn. Maybe there's a spot along a road down there referred to as Bluffton.
