GOP bus tour comes to Fort Wayne

The Indiana Republican Party is kicking off its Right Track Tour tomorrow in Fort Wayne.

U.S. Senators Dan Coats (IN), John Cornyn (TX) and Rob Portman (OH) will join U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock and Indiana Republican Party State Chairman Eric Holcomb at the 4:15 p.m. event.

"More jobs, less debt and lower taxes. That's the right track. That's what Indiana Republicans like Richard Mourdock stand for," said Chairman Holcomb. "And that's the message we're taking to every corner of the state as we kick-off the Right Track Tour.

"This is just the first of dozens of events around the state to highlight our outstanding team of candidates, like Richard Mourdock, and to remind Hoosiers they have a choice this election between the right track of more jobs, less debt and lower taxes and the wrong track of less jobs, more debt and higher taxes."

The event will be held at the Allen County Victory Center on Main Street.

The Right Track Tour is a team effort to get out the vote for GOP candidates statewide and will include dozens of events. A website - www.RightTrackTour.com - has launched for interested Hoosiers to learn more about the efforts of Indiana Republicans to add jobs, reduce debt and lower taxes both at the state and national levels. In addition, the website includes a full schedule of tour events, photos, videos and blog posts from the road, all of which will be frequently updated.
