I find it interesting that the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris should happen so close to the celebration of what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 93rd birthday. Unfortunately, as most know, he was assassinated before he reached 40 years of age.
Come Jan. 20, let’s endeavor to work together and, collectively, give President Trump an open mind and the chance to lead. The only way the issues we face can be solved is with bipartisan resolve.
Monday was the 26th anniversary of the first Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. So we have to ask: What would the nation’s best-known martyr for civil rights think of 2021 America?
Make no mistake, it could happen here. The pro-Trump insurrection Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol was a warning shot across the bow of statehouses across the country, including the Capitol in Indianapolis.
Three Republican state senators have authored legislation that would limit the authority of local health officers, a bill introduced in response to actions taken during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Gov. Holcomb is kicking off his second term with a bold vision for Indiana's future. The governor's State of the State Address reminded Hoosiers of what's possible in Indiana because of the strong foundation Republican leaders have built over the last two decades.
Cheers and Jeers
