On Friday, March 29, we will commemorate National Vietnam War Veterans Day to thank and honor our nation’s Vietnam veterans and their families for the service and sacrifice they gave to our country. We are particularly grateful for the service and sacrifice of our Hoosier Vietnam veterans. O…

No matter how gun laws are made and enforced, there will be no way to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. So why not start looking at punishment instead of treating them like they have rights?

When President Obama decided to unilaterally change immigration policy after Republicans took control of the Senate in 2014, Republicans said he was defying the Constitution, breaking the rule of law, and behaving like a king. They were right.

Today your Indiana Republican Party has never been stronger. We hold every statewide elected office, both U.S. Senate seats, seven U.S. House seats and supermajorities in the Indiana General Assembly.

We’re encouraged – as many Hoosiers are – by the continued forward-looking approach taken by Gov. Holcomb and his administration. Investments to grow and attract Indiana’s current and future workers are required to allow our state to achieve at the highest levels.

Gov. Eric Holcomb demonstrated strong and consistent leadership in his third State of the State address. He proved yet again he is armed and ready to tackle the issues facing Indiana with ideas that will deliver measurable and positive results for all Hoosiers.

“Yellow journalism is 112 years old today (now 123 years in 2019) and is still alive and well. The term was first coined in 1896 during a time of battle of the New York Journal and the New York World for domination of the New York City market. Critics attacked both newspapers for building ci…
