New poll has Shelli Yoder tied with Tennessee Trey in Congressional District 9 race
INDIANAPOLIS – Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth may have bought his way to the Republican nomination for the 9th Congressional District race, but Hoosiers simply aren’t buying his campaign nor its carpetbagger-style tactics. According to a new poll, Democrat Shelli Yoder and Tennessee Trey are statistically tied.
“Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth has somehow convinced himself that he can be an absentee candidate supported only by dark money and still win this November. Well, Tennessee Trey needs to think again. Hoosiers in Southern Indiana admire hard workers, not someone who simply tries to buy his way into anything he wants. said John Zody, Chairman. “Hoosiers in Indiana’s Ninth don’t need someone from Tennessee representing them in the District. They want someone who knows the Ninth and understands the issues that are important to the area. This hardworking person is Shelli Yoder, a proud mother, community leader, and lifelong Hoosier.”
