Indianapolis, Indiana – Brad Chambers revealed on Monday that during a four-month fundraising campaign, his gubernatorial campaign has amassed more than $8.5 million.

The former secretary of commerce for the state, Chambers, stated in a news release that the campaign has raised over $8.58 million in the last four months.

According to officials, the Chambers campaign has raised over $300,000 since the year-end reporting deadline and has $2.91 million in cash on hand at the end of 2023. More than 95% of the gifts, according to the press release, came from people in Indiana.
This is in response to Chambers’ August 2023 campaign announcement. As per earlier reports, on August 17, 2023, Chambers formed his campaign group for the governor’s office.

“I entered this race clear-eyed about the challenges ahead in a field full of career politicians,” Chambers said in the release. “But in just a few short months, Hoosiers have stated loud and clear that they are ready to elect a proven conservative outsider and leader who has the vision and the passion to make Indiana even better.

“We’re just getting started, and I’ve never been more energized to sprint through the finish line and bring opportunity and prosperity to Hoosiers across the state.”

This follows the announcement made earlier this month by U.S. Senator Mike Braun, R-Ind., regarding his gubernatorial campaign that he had raised over $2 million in the second half of 2023. Additionally, Indiana’s Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch’s gubernatorial campaign just disclosed on social media that she had $3.7 million in cash on hand and raised $2.39 million in 2023.

Candidates for governor of Indiana may formally declare their candidacies starting on January 10, according to representatives of the Indiana Election Division. Other contenders that have declared their desire to compete for the post in 2024 are as follows:

• Curtis Hill, a former Indiana Attorney General and a Republican
• Eric Doden, the former president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and a Republican
• Jamie Reitenour, a Republican
• Jennifer McCormick, the former superintendent of public instruction for Indiana and a Democrat
• Donald Rainwater, a Libertarian.
