INDIANAPOLIS- John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after Todd Young clinched the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate race.
“Tonight’s primary result shows what happens when political insiders and third parties swoop in to save a ‘say and do anything’ politician who broke Indiana election law and was undeserving to be on the primary ballot. While Todd Young believes buzzwords will help him win elections, Hoosiers saw the real Todd Young after he blamed anyone but himself for not collecting the minimum 500 signatures requires by state law.
But the fact is, Todd Young is just like the rest of the out-of-touch Republican Party. This career politician put ideology ahead of country when he helped shut down the federal government and voted numerous times to cut the health care for millions of Americans, including many in Indiana. Hoosiers don’t want empty suits representing their state – they want someone who will use some Hoosier Commonsense and work with everyone to help lead Indiana into the future. That person is Baron Hill.”
