Marlin Stutzman Wins Another One
Across Indiana, Marlin Stutzman keeps winning straw poll votes among primary voters. The odds are that when the next polling comes out today or tomorrow, Marlin Stutzman is not going to be in first place. Dan Coats will. That is understandable. Coats has very high name recognition, having been elected repeatedly in the 80′s and 90′s. The trouble for Coats, however, is that momentum is | Read More »
Should You Be Allowed Your Choice of Doctor?
Should you be allowed your own choice in doctor? It seems like a no brainer. What about senior citizens? Should they be allowed to go to the doctor of their choice or keep the doctor they had before they crossed that magic threshold into senior citizenship? This is just common sense. Or at least it should be. But in 1995 the issue came before the | Read More »
Coats Flees Indiana for Welcoming Arms of DC Lobbyists, as Democrats Cheer Him On
The NRSC’s handpicked candidate in Indiana has hit some big obstacles on what he hoped would be a coronation in the GOP primary. After a disappointing fundraising haul, he’s refused to comply with Senate ethics rules by not submitting his financial disclosure forms. And now he’s now facing a surge by grassroots candidate Marlin Stutzman who has raised over $160,000 in just a few days | Read More »
What is Dan Coats Hiding and Why is No One Paying Attention?
One of the purposes of a primary is to get everything out there and let the voters of a party pick who they think is the best candidate to beat the Democrat. To do that, voters need the essential information on a candidate. But Dan Coats is hiding some very key essential information from the voters. He does not want it out there until after | Read More »
Desperate Dan Coats Tries to Repackage Old As New. Again.
Dan Coats knows he is in trouble in Indiana. Momentum is with Marlin Stutzman who just received endorsements from Mark Levin, David Keene, Jim DeMint, and an A+ rating from the NRA — the highest of any candidate running. So Coats is trying to get free media to say Mike Pence just endorsed him. In reality, way back in February when Coats entered the race, | Read More »
NRA Gets Involved in Indiana. Stutzman Is The Only Guy With an A+ Rating.
The NRA is sending out a postcard to its members in Indiana. You can see it here. The NRA is not endorsing in the race, but notes that only Marlin Stutzman has an A+ rating on the second amendment. The postcard also notes that Dan Coats is the only candidate to “cast anti-gun votes” in office. Go Marlin.

Does Indiana Really Remember Dan Coats?
It has been more than a decade since Dan Coats left the United States Senate representing Indiana and moved to North Carolina to take up lobbying. I’m finding in my conversations with people that many remember a different Dan Coats than who was actually there. The pro-life Senator was squishy on a lot of other things. In fact, Dan Coats is pretty bad on gun | Read More »

The beat goes on folks. Jim DeMint is coming out for Marlin Stutzman. This comes on the heels of Dave Keene of the American Conservative Union and Mark Levin.

Time’s up conservatives. We must now unite and we must now rally to save Indiana from the Democrats. The time is now. There can be no more waiting. For months conservatives have sat on the sidelines in the Indiana Senate race. The NRSC dragged former Senator Dan Coats from North Carolina to Indiana and put him into the race. They said he would be warmly | Read More »
The NRSC’s Latest Star Can’t Raise Money. Coats is Toast.
Not only did Dan Coats miss the filing deadline for his financial disclosures, he also failed to raise as much money as people were expecting. Doing nothing to tamp down expectations, the low side of the Coats haul was expected to be $500,000.00 and the high side to be $1 million. He only made it to $379,000.00. On the other hand, Marlin Stutzman keeps picking | Read More »
Another Reason to Vote Stutzman: Responsibility
Geez. All but one candidate for the GOP Senate nomination have missed a deadline for disclosing their income and financial holdings. Marlin Stutzman, one of five contenders for his party’s nod, filed the required form, but the others have not. Their reports are 10 days overdue. I really don’t have anything else to add to that one. How do you miss your financial disclosure deadline?
Another Reason to Vote Marlin Stutzman: Judges
As we head into the Indiana Senate primary in a few weeks, it is a good time to review a key fact. Dan Coats, during the confirmation fight of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, said: “There was a centuries-old tradition of respecting national electoral results by granting the President latitude in selecting nominees for the bench.” Only now that he is in his primary fight is Dan | Read More »

Everything you need to know about the Indiana Senate race is summed up in this article. Dan Coats is running around Indiana telling people you have to be smart to be a Senator.

Marlin Stutzman Takes the Lead Among the Grassroots
Dan Coats has a pretty website up now in Indiana. One thing you won’t there are the results of a devastating straw poll among tea party activists in Indiana. Marlin Stutzman dominated the poll with Coats finishing dead last. Now, I don’t put too much stock in straw polls, but they certainly are good at showing energy and trends. Compare it to the CPAC poll | Read More »
Marlin Stutzman Gets Big Endorsement
The President Pro Tempore of the Indiana Senate is throwing his support behind Marlin Stutzman only a few days after seemingly looking at supporting Dan Coats. Long previously had talked about how he was torn between the candidacy of Stutzman – a friend and colleague – and former U.S. Sen. Dan Coats. But last week he called Stutzman young, bright, articulate and “exactly the kind | Read More »
Ken Tomlinson: Can a Hoosier farmer produce another Massachusetts miracle for Republicans? | Washington Examiner
Ken Tomlinson has a great column about Marlin Stutzman. A notable buzz surrounded youthful Indiana State Sen. Marlin Stutzman as he was escorted around this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) by activist Donna Weisner. “Back in Indiana, they say he’s our Scott Brown,” she said proudly. Stutzman supporters elatedly boasted news of a Rasmussen poll that gives Stutzman a ten-point lead over the likely | Read More »
Will The Media Cover This Angle?
The media, liberal Republicans like David Frum, and every left-winger out there has for a year decried, bemoaned, ridiculed, and laughed at conservatives for an alleged “purity test” for candidates. I have been a chief target of those attacks from the Republican establishment, pundits, the left, and the media. Never mind that is was never true. I’ve always said the GOP should go right where | Read More »
