Holcomb Drops Out Of Senate Race
I'm a bit at a loss to understand this, but WRTV is reporting that former Indiana State GOP Chairman Eric Holcomb has filed paperwork with the Indiana Election Division to withdraw his name from the May primary ballot for the U.S. Senate after filing paperwork to run on January 27. That makes it a two-man race between Third District Congressman Marlin Stutzman and Ninth District Congressman Todd Young. Holcomb lagged well behind the other two candidates in fundraising, but he had compiled an impressive list of endorsements from party leaders up and down the state. I suspect the establishment will join hands now to stop Stutzman.
