Indiana Democratic Party’s 2022 Election Ticket

Share!

Indiana Democrats know that in order to create a better future for families in all 92 counties, leaders must solve those kitchen-table issues most important to voters. This is exactly why leaders like Tom McDermott, Destiny Wells, ZeNai Brooks, Jessica McClellan, Frank Mrvan, and others are running to serve Hoosier families. 

Whether it’s creating jobs, expanding broadband, providing a once-in-a-generation investment in infrastructure systems, combating global inflation, or fighting for a woman’s right to choose – Democrats have plans to deliver for Hoosiers no matter who they are or where they live. 

Take a look at our statewide, Congressional, and state legislative candidates below. Please also consider volunteering, contributing, and supporting these leaders during what is the most defining election of our lifetimes.
