INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after Indiana House Republicans selected Rep. Todd Huston as Speaker-elect.
“Todd Huston is his own worst enemy. In “winning” behind closed doors today, Rep. Huston just made his own reelection a tossup. Huston will be catching wind with a net to keep ultra-conservative allies on board while running in a purple district. Every bone he throws to extremists is at the expense of moderates in a constituency that elected a Democrat in 2019. There’s no winning when Speaker Huston’s decisions imperil Representative Huston’s electoral future.”
