Ken Gividen Joins District 41 Senate Race

Greg Walker's upset win over Senate President Pro Tem Bob Garton in yesterday's Indiana primary for Senate District 41 was dampened today by news that former Libertarian gubernatorial candidate, Ken Gividen, has filed the necessary papers to run for the Senate seat as the Libertarian candidate according to a WTHR-TV broadcast report this evening.

Libertarian candidates in Indiana historically draw votes away from the Republican candidate. Walker was already facing a strong challenge from the Democratic nominee, Columbus attorney Terry Coriden. Coriden told WTHR that he had been contacted by a number of Republicans who say they will not support Walker in the general election because he is too conservative.
