Senate President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne, threw his support to Sen. Marlin Stutzman, R-Howe, in the now-crowded race for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination.
Long previously had talked about how he was torn between the candidacy of Stutzman – a friend and colleague – and former U.S. Sen. Dan Coats.
But last week he called Stutzman young, bright, articulate and “exactly the kind of fresh face that we need to send to Washington.”I agree. -SP
Long stressed that he has great respect for Coats but essentially said his time is past.
“This is 2010, and Marlin Stutzman is our Scott Brown,” Long said. “This is his time. He not only has my support but my vote as well.”
