Congressman Todd Young (R-IN9) met with Young Republicans and those candidates who are running for election in the Washington County Primary election Wednesday night at Tasty House in Salem. He also filed for reelection with the Indiana Secretary of State on Tuesday morning, and also announced that  his campaign raised over $1 million in 2013–the most ever raised by a  Hoosier Republican candidate for Congress in a non-election year according to electronic filings at fec.gov.

“I’m excited to once again get out and earn the trust of  Hoosier voters,” said Young. “We’ve really followed through on our  promises from the first two campaigns, including the House passing bills I authored to delay Obamacare’s individual mandate tax for one year, and to reform our burdensome federal regulatory system.  If our fundraising is any indication, we seem to have earned strong support for the work  we’ve accomplished so far.”

Young was first elected in 2010 and easily secured  reelection with 55% of the vote in 2012.  His FEC report for  2013 can be viewed online at http://docquery.fec.gov/cgi-bin/dcdev/forms/C00459255/901093/ and shows over  $1,021,000 in contributions and total receipts, and nearly $700,000 cash on hand.

Young also announced that Matt Humm will serve as campaign manager for his reelection effort.  Humm has been with Young’s campaign since January 2013 as political director, and staffed the Jeffersonville volunteer office for Young and the Indiana Republican Party in 2012.  Trevor Foughty will continue as campaign adviser and spokesman, the same roles he’s held since 2011; Jeff Wuslich, who has been with the campaign since 2009, will continue as finance director.
