DSCC Communications Director Sadie Weiner issued the following statement on the results of tonight’s Indiana Republican primaries:
“If Republican Senate incumbents and candidates were tired of answering whether they’d support Donald Trump should he win the nomination, we have some bad news. Tonight’s results bring him closer than ever before, and the Republican down ballot candidates should get used to questions like: Are women in office only because of their “woman card”? What kind of punishment should the government impose on women who get abortions? Do you agree that Muslims should be banned from entering the United States? Do you agree that immigrants from Mexico are rapists and criminals? These are the issues that will hound candidates in the Party of Trump, starting with Todd Young.
“After coming embarrassingly close to not making the ballot, Todd Young has to prove that he can run an effective campaign capable of the most basic tasks. But, like the rest of the Republican Senate candidates, Young’s out-of-touch brand of politics will be a hard sell to Hoosier voters eager to elect Senators who will do their jobs and stand up for the middle class.”
