This morning, Dan & Marsha Coats will cast their ballots at the Broad Ripple Park Community Center.
The event is the culmination of nine months of traveling the state, listening to Hoosiers and soliciting ideas on how the United States Congress can better serve its constituents to get America back on track and Hoosiers back to work.
Along the way, Dan has met people like TK Herman, President of Aptera, Inc., who is concerned about the mandates imposed on his small business by ObamaCare. Dan also met with health care professionals in seven cities such as Seymour, Vincennes, Newburgh and Crown Point, to discuss the uncertainty faced by those in the health care profession.
In Fishers, Dan spoke to the employees of Sallie Mae who were sold out in order to pass ObamaCare and in Wabash he toured 5-Hour Energy and met with the entrepreneurs behind a product supplying hundreds of good-paying jobs for Hoosiers in Northern Indiana.
It is Dan’s record and the ideas and solutions he offered during these travels that earned him the endorsements of the U.S. and Indiana Chambers of Commerce, National and Indiana Right to Life, Citizens Against Government Waste, Business Industry PAC, National Federation of Independent Business and the Susan B. Anthony List. The Indianapolis Star, South Bend Tribune, NW Indiana Times and Lafayette Journal & Courier added their voices to the chorus of those endorsing Dan.
At the end of the day Hoosiers have a choice: continue the status quo of big government, higher taxes and more regulatory mandates or a senator committed to fiscal responsibility and lessening the burden felt on Hoosier job creators.
