Tchotchke Watch: John Gregg and His Mustache for Governor

John Gregg, the former Democratic speaker of Indiana's House of Representatives, is running for governor -- with some help from his mustache.

The thoroughly mustached Gregg has made lip fur a theme in his gubernatorial run. He gives out tiny mustache pins, as shown above. This is his campaign logo:

Gregg, who has sported his robust 'stache for 37 years, has been told he should shave it for the gubernatorial run, an aide said. Maintaining it has been a political statement, he told the Indianapolis Star:

"If I shave this off," Gregg said, "people would say, 'What else is he going to change to be governor?' I'm not changing anything to be governor. I am what I am."

The biggest name and de facto favorite in Indiana's 2012 gubernatorial race is Republican Rep. Mike Pence, so Gregg and his mustache may need all the help they can get.
