Back in 2010, Marlin Stutzman was a rising star in Indiana politics. After serving for six years in the Indiana House of Representatives, he ran for and won a seat in the Indiana State Senate in 2008. There he continued his strong conservative voting record, and then in 2010, answered the call when the conservative movement needed a candidate for the vacated senate seat left by Democrat Senator Evan Bayh. Losing to Dan Coates in the Republican Primary, Marlin was given another chance to run for federal office when then Congressman Mark Souder abruptly retired in 2010. Winning a special party caucus in June of that year, Marlin went on to win the general election by 30 points.

Marlin has a 93% on the Heritage Action scorecard this past Congress, and a 93% lifetime on the Club for Growth scorecard and he outpaces the rest of the Indiana delegation by a wide margin on the Madison Project’s Performance Index.

With over 4 years in Washington, Marlin has proven his conservative bona fides by casting many tough votes like voting against John Boehner for Speaker, and by opposing executive amnesty and fighting to repeal Obamacare. Because of this, we are excited to endorse him (again) in his run for the United States Senate.
