Coronavirus

Mask Discontent Could Snarl Indiana Governor’s Reelection

September 23, 2020

INDIANAPOLIS — Discontent among some conservatives about Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s statewide mask mandate and other coronavirus restrictions poses a possible disruption to his reelection campaign.

Some longtime reliable Republican voters complain Holcomb’s coronavirus orders have been “overbearing” and say they intend to support Libertarian candidate Donald Rainwater.

Holcomb defends the mask order as helping keep the coronavirus spread in check.

“It is still uber infectious, it is still ravaging different parts of the country,” Holcomb said. “The more that we do the things that work, the better off we’ll be and we’ll continue to see folks go back to work.”

Libertarians say they’ve been inundated with support recently, while Holcomb’s campaign says the governor will keep following the advice of medical experts. Democratic candidate Dr. Woody Myers, who has struggled to gain attention and raise money, has called for tougher enforcement of the mask order.

Conservative activist Monica Boyer said she’s been a Republican her whole life but decided to back Rainwater like many around her northern Indiana hometown of Warsaw over issues such Holcomb ordering churches closed during the first several weeks of the pandemic.

“He’s doing more than ignoring us,” Boyer said. “He’s rolling over us with the bus and re-rolling over us.”
