Orentlicher Congratulates Ron Drake On Winning The Democratic Party’s Nomination For 8th District Congressional RaceI told him that I have decided to suspend the recount process. Now that we have had a chance to consider the hard work of the State Board of Accounts and to review the notes of our terrific volunteer observers, it is clear that the final numbers will confirm a victory for Mr. Drake.While we will not continue our candidacy any further, we will continue to work for the issues that are so important for the residents of the 8th District, the state of Indiana, and the entire United States. We will continue fighting so workers can have good-paying jobs, children can receive a first-class education, and everyone has access to affordable health care.It is absolutely essential that we turn our district from red to blue and replace the failed policies of Larry Bucshon with policies that will move our country forward. I am happy to endorse Ron Drake for Congress and his campaign to beat Rep. Bucshon this November. I have every confidence that he will give it his all, and it is time for all Hoosier Democrats to support him in his efforts.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
