@AttyAbdul interesting that a certain minister wasn't invited by Joe. Pence invites Harrison to state of state— Englehart Group (@EnglehartGroup) January 1, 2016
A couple of things here. First of all, the State of the State is a different animal, and secondly, the Hogsett Transition Team held a public news conference and announcement last month inviting everyone to the bi-partisan swearing-in ceremony on January 1.
It's hard to say that Reverend Harrison wasn't invited when everyone in Indianapolis and beyond was invited. Later, the Englehart Group stated that Harrison did not receive a personal invitation as other local pastors and clergy did. I can't speak to that, but I know for a fact that he was still invited because everyone was invited.
Harrison, as you might remember, considered running for Mayor of Indianapolis and is one of the guiding forces of the Ten Point Coalition. A "Run Rev Run" movement gathered signatures on his behalf for an independent run for Mayor. Despite having what seemed like enough signatures, Harrison decided not to run.
Reverend Harrison is a good man, and I admire his work. His political supporters, however, sometimes do him no favors.
UPDATE TO THIS STORY:
