Glenda Ritz

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A Fort Wayne newspaper is reporting Indiana schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz will announce she’s running for governor this week.

The Journal Gazette reported Sunday the Northeast Indiana Friends of Public Education has sent out an advisory saying Ritz will make the announcement Friday at 11 a.m. in Fort Wayne.

She would join a Democratic field that already includes former Indiana House Speaker and 2012 nominee John Gregg and state Sen. Karen Tallian of Portage.

Ritz’s campaign Facebook page posted a series of announcements Sunday saying she would make a “special campaign announcement” Thursday at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis. It didn’t say what office she would be seeking. Announcements also were planned for Terre Haute and Evansville later Thursday and in Fort Wayne, South Bend and Hammond on Friday.
