R. Michael Young
Abdul-Hakim Shabazz reports on his Indy Politics website that Hendricks County GOP Chair Mike O'Brien sent out an e-mail trying to remove confusion created by Young's signs. The e-mail says essentially that the local party has endorsed neither Young nor Republican Daniel Kinnamon, his primary challenger. Mark Waterfill is the only Democrat in the race.
Abdul also notes, very astutely, that the boundaries have changed for District 35. No longer are parts of extremely conservative Johnson and Morgan Counties part of the district. Young has done this to himself, according to experts I've talked to. He's apparently the guy that drew the districts.
Young's district now covers only parts of Marion and Hendricks Counties. Young, who lives in Marion County, is the slated candidate in his home county. Will this mess make a difference to the voters of Hendricks County? Maybe not, but it can certainly create more troubles for the Senator.
