(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Indiana Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell says she will run for re-election in 2018.

Mitchell, a Republican, announced Thursday she would seek a second four-year term in the 2018 election.

“Over the past 3 years, I’ve fought to protect Hoosier tax dollars and ensure the safe investment of our state’s assets. I am proud of the work we’ve done in my first term and I have the experience and vision to continue to serve Hoosiers as State Treasurer. In a second term, I will continue to bring a fiscally conservative approach to our investments, reduce taxpayer risk, and protect our tax dollars.” Mitchell said.

She was an investment fund director in the treasurer’s office before seeking the treasurer position in 2014. Before joining the Indiana Treasurer of State’s Office, Kelly Mitchell was a County Commissioner for eight years in Cass County.

The treasurer, auditor and secretary of state office are the three Statehouse positions that will be up for election next year. Republicans currently hold all three positions.

The Republican and Democratic nominees for those offices will be picked at next summer’s state party conventions.
