During the past campaign season, I had a chance to meet all of the candidates currently running to be Indiana’s ninth district’s Congressman. Each one has a different perspective that would make them a good fit for the district.
However, of those candidates, I believe Brent Waltz is the best choice for the district.
He has a long history in Indiana politics while maintaining his dedication to his constituents and principles.
All of this makes him the best choice. Brent has a history of supporting important legislation for Indiana. As a state senator, he has gotten legislation passed to promote financial literacy in schools.
Having siblings in school, I am happy to know they are being taught to deal with credit cards, debt, etc. Also, in 2014 Brent launched a successful campaign to make sure that we had funding in the state budget for veterans courts.
He also has a 100 percent rating from Indiana Right to Life and an A+ from the NRA, showing his dedication to life and the Second Amendment. All of this shows a history of service shows he is a perfect candidate for Congress.
