Schansberg Press Release on Indianapolis Star's Endorsement of Sodrel in 9th Congressional District

October 20, 2008


Indianapolis Star endorses Sodrel, praises Schansberg; Hill shows growth but "weakest of the three"

On Monday, The Star's editorial board endorsed Republican Mike Sodrel in the 9th District race, citing "a business owner's experience and expertise", "a depth of knowledge" from his previous stint in Congress, and "tempered partisan tendencies".

The board commended Democratic incumbent Baron Hill for showing "encouraging growth in the past two years", but thought that he "remains the weakest of the three candidates".

The board also praised Libertarian Eric Schansberg as "well-qualified", "a strong candidate", "thoughtful", "well versed", and "a prime example of how far the Libertarian Party has advanced in Indiana".

Schansberg said, "I'm thankful for the complimentary and encouraging words from the most important newspaper in Indiana. We've run a strong campaign and I'm glad that The Star sees me as a highly credible candidate."
