US Representative Todd Rokita announced his candidacy for US Senate Wednesday – on the steps of the capital – and in a video that sounded like a preview for an epic thriller movie. The voiceover in the video stated Rokita witnessed hard-working people struggle because of the failed policies of the Washington elite, and Rokita knows he can fix Washington. But here’s the problem – Representative Rokita has spent over half a decade in Washington already, with little to show for it. He’s an experienced politician, already part of Washington’s elite. His message is accurate, but Hoosiers continue to disagree he is a non-establishment candidate. His announcement has been met by much criticism. I believe this is just another example of a politician more concerned about saying the right things to get elected, and not working hard enough toward positive results for Indiana.
