INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A magazine article published by his alma mater says former Indiana Gov. Joe Kernan has lost the ability to speak due to Alzheimer's disease and is living in a care facility. Tina Noel, who was Kernan's gubernatorial press secretary, confirmed the details of the Notre Dame Magazine report to The Associated Press, and said Kernan was diagnosed several years ago. The Democrat won three elections as South Bend mayor before being elected lieutenant governor with Gov. Frank O'Bannon in 1996.

Indiana’s first openly gay major party candidate for governor announced his bid Monday.

Indianapolis tech entrepreneur Josh Owens will seek the Democratic nomination.

Josh Owens is the CEO of SupplyKick, an Indianapolis-based online retailer. The 34-year-old, who’s never before run for elected office, announced he’s filed for governor.

Former Indiana Governor Evan Bayh says the partisan nature of modern politics has dismayed him from committing to another run.
