Statement by Chairman Zody on the GOP Senate primary debate

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement in response to the Republican Senate primary debate sponsored by Americans for Prosperity:

Tonight’s GOP Senate primary debate just proved what we already knew: all three of these deeply-flawed candidates are out of touch with Hoosier voters. This was an opportunity for Congressman Messer, Congressman Rokita and Rep. Braun to present real solutions. But outside of their full-throated endorsement of Joe Donnelly’s Right-to-Try Act, we only got the same personal attacks and mudslinging that made this the ‘nastiest race in politics’ months ago. Maybe the Koch brothers found someone tonight with the right mix of far-right policies and a potentially salvageable campaign, but the only winner for Hoosiers is the bipartisanship and common sense of Joe Donnelly.”
