Now that Trey Hollingsworth has decided not to run for re-election in Indiana’s 9th Congressional District, State Senator Erin Houchin has decided to get in the race.
Houchin announced Thursday morning that she was running.
“As a proven conservative fighter, I have always stood up for our Hoosier values and individual liberties, protected our Second Amendment rights, defended the unborn, and protected the integrity of our elections,” said Houchin. “I’ve fought to keep our families and communities safe, standing firm with the brave men and women in law enforcement and holding criminals accountable for their actions.”
Houchin touts her pro-life and second amendment voting records as well as voting for balanced budgets and supporting rural broadband.
Houchin ran against Hollingsworth in the 2016 May primary and finished in second place.
