Todd Young announces candidacy PDF Print E-mail

    Recently, Marine Veteran and current Orange County Deputy Prosecutor Todd Young filed his official candidacy forms to run for US Congress in Indiana’s Ninth Congressional District. He immediately embarked on a “Reclaiming Our Congress” Tour to highlight the needs of a district that has been misrepresented in Washington for far too long.
    Young has been campaigning for the Ninth District seat since January of last year. In that time, he has contacted thousands of voters across the district to hear their concerns; set new fundraising records for a Republican challenger in the district; and earned the public support of nearly every statewide officeholder and the bulk of the district’s Republican county chairmen.
    Young spoke to a packed room full of supporters at his first tour stop at local business Chapman Kelly in Jeffersonville.
    “I am running for office because I am tired of Washington politicians giving lip service to things I care about, like fiscal responsibility, and then going to Washington and supporting the same reckless agenda we have seen leaders of both parties pursue in recent years,” he stated.
    Young continued. “We need responsible leaders who will stand on principle, challenge the excesses of the past, and fight for fiscal responsibility and long-term job growth. In short, we need more leaders in Washington.”
    Young, who is the father of two young girls, and whose wife Jenny is pregnant with twins, is running for Congress out of concern for his children’s’ future.  
    “We cannot continue to spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need.  At some point, we have to stop borrowing from foreign governments like China and passing the debts on to our children and grandchildren.”
