State Sen. Mike Delph will not run in 2016

Posted at 1:33 PM, Sep 15, 2015

State Sen. Mike Delph has decided not to run for any office in 2016.

He made the announcement in a statement. 

"While I have been grateful and humbled by the encouragement, confidence, and support granted to me, it has become increasingly apparent that the burden on my family would be too great for me to enter the open United States Senate race, or any race, in 2016.  My responsibility as a husband and a father trumps the duty and noble calling of public service."

In April, Delph said on Indy This Week he was considering joining the U.S. Senate race to replace Dan Coats.
