The Socialist Party USA says it‘s gathered enough signatures to field the sole opposition to two very different state representatives: Carmel Republican Jerry Torr and Indianapolis Democrat Cherrish Pryor.
Pryor’s challenger Ron Haldeman charges both Republicans and Democrats have been too sympathetic to corporations. He says legislators should emulate France‘s new Socialist president and raise taxes to hire more teachers and build libraries and schools.
John Strinka charges the right-to-work law Torr authored will destroy workers’ only way to level the playing field with employers, by chipping away at collective bargaining. And he and Haldeman both say the campaign gives them a platform to make their case that the government is better positioned to serve the common good.
