I do not always agree with this blogger and I have not yet officially endorsed a candidate for Indiana District One (and when I do the initials will not be RP) but the information in the post underlines why we need to work hard to root out Porky Pete!
I think the responsible thing for me to do here is to mention that District One candidates Mark Leyva and Eric L Olson are the leaders in the horse race to be the anti-Visclosky in this year's race as we round the turn to the final stretch. Peter Lindemulder III and Rob Pastore are dark horse candidates. The letter writer prefers Pastore and I leave that part in because, hey, the guy has something to say let him say it all, right?
Also, the work of people like Lake County GOP chairwoman Kim Krull was not mentioned. Kim has been a reform-minded leader intent upon undoing much of the Cantrell damage. Len Reynolds, the Lake County Right-To-Life Chairman is also an important player in Lake County politics, a good man who is working for a great cause and is also trying to work to clean up the mess that was Lake County GOP.
With no further ado...
You will hopefully use your time well leading up to the primary. I hope you will vote in the primaries and that your vote is an informed one!
