Nope. No candidacy announcement today. Sorry.

Patriotic Juggler

I know you’ve been on the edge of your seat in anticipation, asking the same questions over and over and over again.

Which will it be?


I know I said I’d be making an announcement today about whether I’m going to pursue the Republican nomination for Governor of Indiana. Sometimes, these decisions take time. So i don’t have an announcement for you today. I hear that the Indiana GOP leaders are supposed to gather and make a decision on Tuesday of next week. So I guess I have a little bit of time, although time is most definitely ticking away.




Do not be troubled, though, friends. Not all is lost. You didn’t waste your time by visiting here today. I leave you with Uncle Sam juggling on the lawn of home of former Governor of Indiana and President Benjamin Harrison. Can things scream Hoosier Pride more than that? OK, maybe he could be eating a pork tenderloin sandwich while juggling, but that might be a bit too much…

Are you not entertained?

This video is especially poignant for me right now. Of course, there’s the whole “politics feels like a circus” angle, but this is a bit more personal. I feel like I’m doing my best to be that guy, juggling my heart out and trying to keep everything in the air without crashing down around me. And I’m not nearly as skilled as good old Juggling Uncle Sam is. Unfortunately.

Have you ever been there? Have you ever felt like you’re doing your best to keep everything moving just the right way, but you’re just one misstep from everything crashing down around you? What do you do? What has helped you get through the chaos?

If I’m going to run for Governor of Indiana, I need to be able to handle storms while keeping everything in the air that needs to be in the air. Even if I don’t run for Governor, I need to find ways to improve the way I navigate the chaos.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t necessarily think I need to have all of my proverbial ducks in a neat row. I do, however, think I should at least know how many ducks I have. And I’d like to keep them from crashing to the ground in a fiery ball of fire.

So, do you have any tips, tricks, or advice? I would love to hear it.

Oh, and if you want to voice your #GoMattGo or #NoMattNo opinion, there’s still time.
