Eric Holcomb on Principles & Values

 

 


Every citizen should have equal access and opportunity

My fellow Hoosiers, we've become known around the world as "A State that Works." I want Indiana to become known as "A State that Works for All." Where every citizen--no matter their background or age or who they love or whether they grew up here or arrived last week--has equal access and opportunity to go as far as they wish and are willing to work to get there. That's what I'll continue to fight for.

Proven, passionate solutions-oriented approach

Senator Dan Coats announced earlier this week he would not seek reelection. Holcomb stepped down from a job running Coats' state office shortly afterwards.

Holcomb said he wants to lead the same "proven, passionate solutions-oriented approach" in Washington as seen in the last decade in Indiana [since Coats was elected]. "Ten some years ago our state was running adrift," Holcomb said. "That all changed when Hoosiers in record numbers came together and rallied around a leader who presented solution-oriented ideas always leaning toward more freedom, greater opportunity and bold pro-growth policies."

Holcomb said he was proud to have been a part of that turnaround and that the experience taught him that broad public support and engagement is "paramount to realizing real change for the better."

"And, I'm asking every Hoosier who feels the way I do--who has a shared responsibility and duty--who feels that returning America to our rightful and respected position in the world to join me."
