The Indiana Democratic Party State Central Committee has endorsed Courtney Tritch for the U.S. House seat representing northeast Indiana.
Tritch is among three announced candidates for the Democratic nomination for the 3rd District seat of Republican Rep. Jim Banks.
“Courtney has the know-how and experience to jumpstart the Hoosier economy and attract and cultivate good-paying jobs to Indiana’s Third Congressional District,” state Democratic Party Chairman John Zody said Wednesday in a statement. “The State Central Committee and Hoosier Democrats back candidates who are focused on building up Indiana communities, who fight for families, fairness and the future, and that’s exactly the kind of leader Courtney Tritch is.”
Tritch, a Fort Wayne resident, owns a marketing consulting firm and is a former vice president of marketing for the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, an economic development organization.
She recently was endorsed by the 3rd Congressional District Democratic Party. The district includes 10 counties in northeast Indiana and parts of two others.
Other announced Democratic congressional candidates are Fort Wayne residents David Roach and Tommy Schrader, who won the 2016 Democratic primary election in the 3rd District.
