Erin Houchin Files for Congress

(Salem, IN) – Today State Senator Erin Houchin filed as a candidate for United States Representative on the Republican primary ballot in Indiana’s 9th Congressional District.

“I’m running for Congress because our country, our state, and the 9th District need and deserve conservative leadership in Washington. In the last seven years, the Obama presidency has done nothing to fix what is broken in Washington,” Houchin said.

“The issues our country faces are too great to stand idly by. I have lived, worked and served in the 9th District all my life, and I look forward to being the strong conservative leader that we need in Washington.”

Erin Houchin is a pro-life conservative candidate for Congress in the 9th district.

In 2014, voters in six counties elected Erin to represent them in the Indiana State Senate. By defeating a powerful 26-year incumbent who had served as Senate Democratic Leader, Erin proved she can win tough races and gained immediate credibility allowing her to move quickly to establish herself as an able and credible conservative who could get things done for her constituents.

In the State Senate, Erin’s priorities are creating good-paying jobs by supporting small businesses and keeping taxes low, and for better educational opportunities for our children by investing in education and empowering parents. In 2015, Erin helped create a balanced budget for Indiana without tax increases and was a vocal advocate for adding a Balanced Budget Amendment to our state Constitution. In Congress, Erin will fight for a Federal Balanced Budget Amendment to control the reckless spending and debt in Washington.

Erin has a 100 percent voting record with Right to Life and was endorsed by Indiana Right to Life and the National Rifle Association in her 2014 campaign. Erin and her husband live in Salem with their three children.
