Charlie White Scores Three Major Endorsements
Republican candidate for Secretary of State Charlie White scored three major endorsements today when he announced that he received the backing of the Indiana Manufacturers Association, Indiana Right to Life and the Auto Dealers Association.
The Indiana Manufacturers Association is the voice of manufacturing in Indiana, the most manufacturing-intensive state in America. In existence since 1901, the IMA zealously protects the interests of manufacturing in the state.
In a statement, IMA Vice President Ed Roberts stated, “We have long understood that Indiana’s economic future is heavily influenced by the laws and regulations under which manufacturers must endeavor to create jobs and operate successful businesses. Having examined the candidates, we find manufacturing interests would be best served by your winning the Secretary of State election.”
Charlie also accepted an endorsement from Indiana Right to Life, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring and protecting the sanctity of life. They seek to educate the public on the issues of abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia and to move the current culture back to a respect for life.
From Indiana Right to Life PAC Chairman Mike Ficter, “We are honored to endorse Charlie White. His strong commitment to the sanctity of life and his belief in true conservative principals are qualities that make him an excellent choice to serve as our next Secretary of State”
The Democratic candidate for Secretary of State refused to complete an Indiana Right to Life Survey.
Charlie White also received the endorsement from the Auto Dealers Association of Indiana.
The emphasis is mine. I wonder why Charlie’s Democrat challenger refused to take a stand on life? Frankly, his refusal to complete Indiana Right to Life’s survey speaks loud and clear as to where he stands.
Endorsements may not necessarily sway your vote, but here are a few things to consider and why these endorsements are important.

The interaction that the Secretary of State has with legislation regarding business development and as well as the services the SoS provides business start ups through the Business Services Division, the comments made by IMA Vice President Ed Roberts should be taken under heavy consideration.
In addition, the Dealer Services Division is an important aspect of the SoS’s office that works directly with automobile dealers all across the state. So scoring their endorsement is also of major value and not to be overlooked.
All of this goes to show that the Secretary of State’s position is more than just Chief Elections Officer, though that’s no less important because of these other roles.
Congrats to Charlie for bringing in three major endorsements.
