Waterman Endorses Democratic State Senate Candidate
The wounds of a grueling primary contest in May in which incumbent State Sen. John Waterman (R) was ousted by businessman Eric Brassler never healed. Waterman has endorsed Brassler's Democratic opponent, Steve Lindsey, a former Greene Co. commissioner. Waterman called Lindsey "a good Christian conservative" in endorsing him over Brassler according to the Journal-Gazette. Brassler had received the strong backing of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, which is seeking to rid the influence of conservative Christians within the Indiana Republican Party.
