INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A Democratic state senator is formally entering the Indiana governor's race with the state's Republican schools chief expected by his side.

First-term Sen. Eddie Melton of Gary says he's joining the 2020 race because most people feel that the Republican-led state government isn't focused on issues like increased education funding and health care access that matter the most.

Melton has a Tuesday evening announcement event set in Gary. He'll be the third Democrat seeking the party's nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb.
