U.S. House of Representatives, Indiana-03
Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District is solidly Republican, and with incumbent Marlin Stutzman making a bid for U.S. Senate, the race to fill his conservative shoes has more than one solid contender. Candidates Kip Tom, Pam Galloway and Jim Banks are all members of the National Republican Congressional Committee’s “Young Guns” program, meaning any of the three would be a fine representation of small-government principles. But its State Senator Jim Banks who’s really carrying the conservative torch, scoring endorsements from Club for Growth, Tea Party Express and the Senate Conservatives Fund. Banks, an Afghanistan veteran, is widely regarded as the most conservative member of Indiana’s upper chamber. Young, charismatic and conservative: that’s the kind of triple threat we here at Conservative Intel can get really behind.
