From 10 AM to 11 AM in the Marriage Class Room (enter by the door closest to the South-West corner of the building)  Marlin Stutzman will be mingling with people and answering questions.  Marlin Stutzman is the early leader in polling for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat held by the retiring Evan Bayh. 

Howe, IN - On the heels of a strong endorsement from Senate Pro Tempore David Long, twenty two additional State Senators from all corners of Indiana endorsed Stutzman's campaign for US Senate. Sen. Carlin Yoder (R-Middlebury) stated "It really goes to the character of Marlin that so many people who have worked with him day in and day out didn't hesitate to sign on to this US Senate race. The bottom line is they know we need leaders like Marlin to address the challenges of our country." Stutzman has been running for 11 months and has traveled nearly 20,000 miles across the state to galvanize the conservative base. The Washington Republican establishment recruited their own candidate last month. That decision has been met with significant push back from local and grassroots Republicans. Marlin clearly has the courage it takes to take on the Washington establishment. These endorsements today also indicate Stutzman is the type of insurgent candidate who can win this May's primary. The twenty three senators are listed below. 
Stutzman Secures Endorsements
"I am grateful for the support of so many people I admire and respect.
I believe my colleagues understand that Washington is broken. We
need new leadership to work on the kind of substantive reforms we
have been able to accomplish here in Indiana.

Trivial historical pursuit!  How many times bigger was the latest "Louisiana Purchase"  (The bribery of Mary Landrieu to vote for Obamacare) versus the original?  (Answer at bottom)

From CFIF: In 1803, then-President Thomas Jefferson sent his close personal friend, James Monroe, to France, to join U.S. Minister to France Robert Livingston. The men were tasked with securing for the U.S. permanent rights to the critical port city of New Orleans, which was at the time a French possession in the Americas. Authorized solely to purchase the city of New Orleans and a tract of land east of the Mississippi River, with a budget not to exceed $10 million, what the two men actually negotiated differed considerably from what Congress and the President had authorized.

Gaye Wilson, a researcher at Jefferson’s Monticello, writes:

“[O]n what Jefferson later called ‘a fugitive occurrence,’ Monroe and Livingston immediately entered into negotiations and on April 30 reached an agreement that exceeded their authority - the purchase of the Louisiana territory, including New Orleans, for $15 million. The acquisition of approximately 827,000 square miles would double the size of the United States.”

In 2009, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), negotiated what came to be called her own “Louisiana Purchase,” striking a deal for up to $300 million in Medicaid subsidies for the Bayou State in exchange for her “yes” vote on Senate health care reform legislation.

ANSWER: The Obama Administration was willing to pay 20 times the cost of that historic massive acquisition of territory in order to bribe one Senator to vote for Obamacare. Wow!
