Three reasons I will be voting Joel Phelps for Congress in November:

  1. Phelps has a tangible and achievable plan to bring our state over 15,000 badly-needed jobs and a comprehensive energy policy that shows a firm understanding of our district and its energy potential.
  2. Pete Visclosky, Phelps’s opponent, has failed to accomplish anything in his 28 years in office that would convince me to vote for him again. He has voted against trillions of dollars in tax cuts, but he has voted for every spending bill that came along.
  3. Unlike Visclosky, Joel Phelps truly stands for my Hoosier values such as Second Amendment rights, protecting the lives of the unborn, traditional marriage, etc.

While Visclosky strikes many as nothing more than a political opportunist, Phelps has a sincere vision for our district. Phelps has my vote, and I urge you to give him yours as well.
