INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO):  Indiana’s Governor has stated that he will not make a bid for the Senate in 2024.  Governor Eric Holcomb’s statement expelled rumors that he would seek federal office after his gubernatorial term ends next year. Holcomb told the Indiana Capital Chronical this past Friday that he has “closed the door” and that he is “too busy.” The outgoing governor appeared to say in an op-ed last week that he will not run for the open U.S. Senate seat, or any other office in the next election cycle.

Many believe that announcement will likely make 3rd District Republican U.S. Rep. Jim Banks a lock for the GOP nomination as U.S. Senator Mike Braun is giving up his seat to run for governor in 2024.

The word you want to use is “dispel” not expel
