INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former Democratic Indiana House Speaker John Gregg will run for governor in 2012. Gregg filed paperwork Monday to create an exploratory committee for the governor’s race. Public relations consultant Steve Campbell, who is working with Gregg, told The Associated Press that Gregg plans an official campaign kickoff later.

Gregg called all 92 county chairmen over the weekend to tell them he’s running.

Gregg is known for his vibrant personality and quick wit.

Many Democrats believe he’s the party’s best hope for a shot at claiming the governor’s office in 2012.

Gregg says Hoosiers are tired of “divisive politics” and want someone who can bring people together. That’s a dig at Republican front-runner U.S. Rep. Mike Pence.

whom Democrats are trying to portray as too conservative for mainstream voters.
