INDIANAPOLIS – Never-at-fault Congressman Todd Young chose to campaign with Mike Pence over the weekend in Central Indiana. This unity begs the question – like his support for Donald Trump, does Congressman Young believe in Mike Pence’s policies and record that have stalled Indiana’s economy, driven away job opportunities, and nationally embarrassed our reputation?
“While he has expressed his support for Mike Pence’s RFRA – a move that caused a $250 million economic panic – does Congressman Young also believe in the governor’s policies that have stalled our economy? Currently, income strength for Hoosiers ranks 38th in the nation and the state’s economic growth ranks last in the Midwest – does Todd Young believe this is an achievement?” said John Zody, Chairman. “Hoosiers don’t believe the economic snapshot Mike Pence is telling them because the truth is in their pocketbooks. As the governor is not getting the job done for Hoosiers, where does Congressman Young stand? If he wants to be U.S. Senator, Hoosiers deserve to know.”
Hoosiers have witnessed first-hand how an out-of-touch agenda could damage an economy and a state’s reputation – through Governor Mike Pence. Hoosiers have a right to know where the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate stands. Will Congressman Young be in lockstep with Mike Pence or will he abide by #YoungsLaw by opting out of responsibility for Pence’s mess?
