  • Zody calls for no fault absentee for general election; Holcomb, Lawson won't commit
    “I’m calling for the Election Commission to extend no-fault absentee voting to the General Election and come to a bipartisan agreement about extending necessary deadlines. This is something Hoosier voters want.” - Democrat Chairman John Zody, calling for no-fault absentee voting in November after more than 500,000 Hoosiers used that method in Tuesday's primary. Gov. Eric Holcomb was asked about extending it to November and said, “We’re still counting the votes by the way. So before we weigh-in on the next election, we need to land this one. But I know from the turnout yesterday in person, that that option is critically important to many people.” Secretary of State Connie Lawson added, “My goal would be to have a normal election in November with the normal absentee process, 28 days of early, in-person voting, and voting on Election Day.” President Trump has expressed opposition to widespread voting by mail, even though he votes that way himself.

  • President Trump, Gov. Holcomb address the pandemic in their own words
    The COVID-19 pandemic is becoming the story of our time. As Sen. Todd Young explained, unlike the Great Recession of 2008-09 and the Oil Shock recession of 1979-82, what we are experiencing today is a double hammer: A pandemic and a severe economic panic. The Hoosier State is poised to go from a historic low 3.1% unemployment rate to double digits in the span of a month. At least one pandemic model says 2,400 Hoosiers will die.

    Tough times shift our attention to leadership. Here are quotes from President Trump and Gov. Eric Holcomb as the pandemic approached the U.S. and then impacted our nation and state.

    President Trump

    Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.” – CNBC interview.

    Feb. 10: “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.” – New Hampshire rally.

    Feb. 24: “The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. … Stock market starting to look very good to me!” – On Twitter.

    Feb. 25: “China is working very, very hard. I have spoken to President Xi, and they are working very hard. If you know anything about him, I think he will be in pretty good shape. I think that is a problem that is going to go away.”

    Feb. 26: “We’re going to be pretty soon at only five people. And we could be at just one or two people over the next short period of time. So we’ve had very good luck.” – At a White House news conference.
