Congressman Luke Messer is making his round in Indiana to campaign for a seat in the United States Senate. Messer made a stop in Evansville after filing papers to be on the ballot.
Senate candidates must have 500 signatures of registered voters from each of Indiana’s nine Congressional Districts to have their name added to the ballot.
Congressman Messer says if elected he would like to make a slot of changes in Washington.
Messer said, “The US senate is broken and i have a three step plan that would fix it. First we need to get rid of the filibuster. Hoosier’s want to know when they send new leaders to Washington that they can get a vote to get it done. The filibuster is preventing that and becoming a tool of partisanship and not bipartisanship. We need to reform the appointment process. President Trump’s appointments are just not getting confirmed, frankly because the democrats are standing in the way of that happening, and third I support term limits.”
Other Republicans in the race include Todd Rokita, Mike Braun, Andrew Horning, Terry Henderson, Andrew Takami, and Mark Hurt. The winner will likely face incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly in the fall.
