WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s visit to Elkhart, Indiana:
“Today, Elkhart is in the national spotlight for its remarkable resilience. Hit hard during the recession, the citizens of Elkhart persevered and dramatically changed the city’s trajectory for the better. Today’s visit by President Obama should not be about glad-handing but should instead be a celebration of Elkhart’s strong work ethic and renewed economic success.
“I hope the president also acknowledges the pro-growth policies pursued by the state of Indiana, which have made our state one of the nation’s economic success stories.”
