Indianapolis businessman and developer John Schmitz is expected to announce his bid for Mayor later this week.

According to his Facebook page, Schmitz will make the announcement on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. on Monument Circle.

His campaign has released a biographical video on YouTube.

Incumbent Mayor Joe Hogsett announced last week he was running for a second term.

Schmitz is likely to face primary challenges from former Indianapolis City-County Council Member Jose Evans and former Butler Tarkington Neighborhood Association President Ted Feeney.
