Obit Joe Kernan

Indiana Gov. Joe Kernan acknowledges the applause of supporters as he concedes to Republican challenger Mitch Daniels in the race for governor. Kernan has died at age 74.

Gov. Eric J. Holcomb directed flags statewide to be flown at half-staff to honor former Governor Joe Kernan, who died Wednesday at 74.

“Holcomb also asks businesses and residents across the state to lower their flags to half-staff to honor former Gov. Kernan and his service,” said Rachel Hoffmeyer, press secretary.
