OPEN ITEM – Labor Regulations and Candidate Updates

Rep. Todd Rokita had a number of committee hearings this week, we picked one that covered labor regulations for our Hoosier HighlightCongressman Todd Rokita (R-Clermont) has had a busy week, no few than three videos were posted on his YouTube channel with committee hearings covering the budget, education programs and labor regulations. We made the latter our Hoosier Highlight for this week and you can view the video clip at the top of our homepage. You may want to check out Rep. Rokita’s YouTube stream and see what else he’s been up to.

On the candidate front there has been some action. I’ve noted over the past few weeks that there’s been shockingly zero primary challenges filed on the Democrat side for any of the Statehouse races. Well that changed this week as two Democrats have filed to run for the nomination in Senate District 6 to succeed retiring Senator Sue Landske (R-Cedar Lake). There are also two people running for the Republican nomination for that district as well.

The other contested race is for the Democrat nomination to run for House District 11. The incumbent, State Representative Rick Niemeyer (R-Lowell) is one of the candidates in the Republican Primary for SD 6 and can’t run for reelection to this seat. There’s only one Republican, law enforcement administrator Michael Mears, in the race so far for HD 11.

New developments on the Republican side include a new candidate running in Senate District 38 for the opportunity to challenge incumbent Senator Tim Skinner (D-Terre Haute). John Carson filed to run against manufacturing executive Jon Ford – who announced his campaign this past summer.

On the House side Representative Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) picked up a challenger this week as well. Don Meier. It will be curious to see if he’s part of a larger effort by social conservatives to recruit candidates to run against Republicans who voted to strike the second sentence from HJR 3. There are radio ads airing in the Fort Wayne and Michiana markets targeting State Representative Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) and there are active efforts to recruit candidates against State Representatives Kathy Heuer (R-Columbia City) and Dan Leonard (R-Huntington). State Representative Casey Cox (R-Fort Wayne) already has two of the candidates who ran against him in the caucus that elected him to office filed to run in the upcoming primary.

You can view the full list of candidates who have filed on the Secretary of State’s webpage.
