Information about Stockdale is included on the Indianapolis Tea Party website and is mentioned on the Ron Paul forum site.
According to the Tea Party website Stockdale was scheduled to stop at the Subway restaurant in Greentown on Saturday. But there was no mention of the campaign stop on the Howard County Republican Party website calendar.
“David’s vulnerable incumbent opponent, freshman congresswoman Susan Brooks, supports bigger government and larger bail-outs,” reads a recent Stockdale campaign announcement. “She is a career government worker. Davis is running a well-organized campaign to defeat Brooks based on a lethargic voting record that aligns her with moderates and populist ideals.”
Signs of renewed interest?
Howard County Democratic Party Chairman David Tharp is very happy about this year’s upcoming Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, which could be setting an attendance record for recent years.
Tharp said he has 236 people reserved to see Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz, up from around 100 last year. The event is Nov. 9, and is sold out, Tharp said, with 31 on a waiting list. Ritz spoke at last year’s event as well.
“I wish I could say that I have some magic formula, but it’s fairly rudimentary,” Tharp texted. “Set goals, plan out how to achieve them. Empower others to help achieve the goals. Build a list, work the list.”
For comparison, Howard County Republican Party Chairman Craig Dunn said last year’s annual GOP Lincoln Day Dinner drew 235.
