Recently, Baron Hill stepped down to allow Evan Bayh to compete in the senate race. Personally, I find this to be a horrendous violation of Democracy. The people who voted in the Democratic primary selected Hill as their nominee while Bayh didn’t even seek the nomination. The people have spoken and they did not ask for Bayh. For this reason, at a time when the party is divided, I believe the Republican Party must unite to reject this evasion of Democracy.
I know we’ve had our disagreements in the primary, but we must unite behind Todd Young for Senate. Let us remember that the Supreme Court is one of the many important issues at stake in this election. We know which one of the candidates will put a conservative on the bench and which one will not. Besides, Bayh has been a longtime Clinton supporter while Young has condemned her violations of the law, Bayh has received 100% from NARAL while Young has always proudly campaigned on being pro-life, and Bayh has endorsed new environmental regulations while Young has sought to REIN in the government agencies. It is clear the conservative and Republican choice is Todd Young. For that reason, I ask the party to unite behind its candidate and send in the marine. Our values, our country, and our democracy depend on it.
