Congresswoman Susan Brooks Endorses Luke Messer for U.S. Senate
September 20, 2017
INDIANAPOLIS – U.S. Congresswoman Susan Brooks today endorsed Luke Messer in his campaign for United States Senate.
Brooks, who represents Indiana’s 5th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, issued the following statement announcing her support.
“Luke and I have been friends for a long time, and being his colleague and watching him work up close, I have no doubt he’ll make a great U.S. Senator. We face tough issues as a nation and need Luke Messer in the Senate to meet those challenges and make Washington work better for Hoosiers,” Brooks said. “Luke is a proven conservative, but more than that, he is a respected and skillful leader who builds the relationships necessary to get our shared priorities enacted into law. His principles and strong communication skills have made him a go-to leader in the House, and those same attributes will enable Luke to deliver results when he arrives in the U. S. Senate. His record of fighting for school choice to create better education opportunities for tens of thousands of Indiana families and protecting veterans’ GI Bill benefits shows Hoosiers they can trust him to do the right thing and do it well.”
Messer announced Brooks will serve as honorary chairwoman of a new statewide team “Women for Luke” – a group of women supporters focused on electing Luke Messer to the U.S. Senate.
“Susan is a great friend and an exceptional public servant who works hard for Hoosiers every day,” Messer said. “Her leadership on the opioid crisis and her dedication to supporting veterans and Hoosier families speaks volumes about her character and the type of leader she is for Indiana. I’m thrilled to have her involvement and support in our campaign.”
With Congresswoman Brooks as honorary chair, the “Women for Luke” team will travel the state to campaign and host events for Luke Messer’s U.S. Senate campaign. Additional membership of “Women for Luke” will be announced in the coming weeks.
