There’s a reason Indiana is known as America’s heartland — it’s because we’re America’s heart and soul. Growing up in Seymour, I learned the values that make Indiana great — we work hard, care for our neighbors, respect each other, and sacrifice so our children can live a better life. My parents worked for most of their lives at the old Gerwin Shoe Factory, until they got laid-off when it closed. I was the last of seven kids, living in a two-bedroom house. We didn’t have much, but I always had food in my belly and a basketball in my hands, and most of all, I had faith that even though I wasn’t born rich or well connected, I could achieve the American Dream. And I learned that what the sign on the locker room door says is true — ‘it’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.’
We face a crisis today as a people and as a nation. For too long, working people across America have been counted out, and left out, of our economic progress. And far too often, the deck is stacked against us in Washington and it is getting harder for average people who work hard and play by the rules to get ahead. We can either put our heads in the sand, or we can fight to restore the American Dream, the middle class, and what’s great about Indiana. I know we can do better, and I believe we can build an economy where everyone has the chance to succeed. That’s what I’ll fight for as a Senator representing Indiana.
