BRISTOL — The Jeff Petermann for Congress campaign filed a complaint Thursday, Feb. 4, with the Indiana Election Commission, against the Republican Party. Peterman believes there have been unnecessary delays in obtaining primary voter election data for Indiana District 2 Congressional Race.
“I knew my opponent, Jackie Walorski, was a part of the Washington establishment and was influenced by lobbyists’ money; I did not expect the Indiana State Republican party to interfere with a fair election,” said Jeff Petermann. “I was first promised access to the district 2 election database on Friday, Jan. 29. After seven phone calls and more promises, I believe there is an obvious tactic meant to hurt my campaign.”
Petermann went on to say this complaint is also intended to help future candidates running against incumbents. “Jackie has betrayed the conservative voters who elected her,” explained Petermann. “In particular, by pulling her name off of her co-sponsorship of the 2015 Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, she not only personally killed the bill but is now responsible for the abortion of thousands of babies. She has also consistently voted to expand the NSA and the size of our federal government. District 2 deserves an opportunity to either reinforce Jackie’s establishment values or give her a pink slip and vote for a true Conservative.”
The Secretary of State is the chief election official of the four-member Indiana Election Commission. Petermann’s complaint was filed at 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
