I’d like to offer some brief non-political impressions of a few political folks.

A little over a week ago I went to a ribbon-cutting at the new “Republican Victory Center” out on South Nappanee Street in Elkhart. A “Victory Center” is what we used to call a campaign headquarters.

Anyone could have gone, of course, but there were only about a hundred people there on that hot Saturday. Those who did come had a unique opportunity to check out some political heavy-hitters in a down-home casual situation. (There were even free smoothies and chocolate chip cookies.)

Although there were a number of state politicians there, I think people had mainly come for the big names: Pence, Walorski and Mourdock.

As I’m sure you know, Mike Pence wants to be our next governor; Jackie Walorski is running for the U.S. House of Representatives; and Richard Mourdock is seeking a seat in the U.S. Senate.

READ HERE for Leib’s off-the-cuff impressions of Indiana’s GOP candidates. EDITORIAL NOTE: I especially like where Leib describes Richard Mourdock as a “man of his word…that is who he says he is”. In my opinion, the article is insightful and gives a feel for who our candidates are.
