Engling: GOP needs individuals who are willing to implement new ideas



Indianapolis, Indiana – Indiana needs a member of Congress who can forge alliances across party lines and within the Republican Party, according to a former Congressional staffer.

Ten Republicans, including Max Engling, are running against U.S. Representative Victoria Spartz for a second term. The fifth congressional district of Indiana, which runs from the northern suburbs of Indianapolis to Kokomo and Marion, is covered by her seat.

In the past, Engling worked for the Speaker of the US House of Representatives as the director of member services. Concerns about the expense of living top the list of topics Engling says he discusses with voters, followed closely by issues with the border and the national debt. Republicans must work together to resolve their differences to develop and implement cohesive policy proposals.

“I’m tired of just talking and losing on issues,” he said. “I want to get out there and say, how do we win? How do we build a group of people that won’t let us down on this and accomplish those conservative things?”

According to Engling, voters are looking for someone who upholds conservative principles while bringing new ideas. He cited the debt as an example, suggesting that Congress undertake a two-year budget cycle or ask the Congressional Budget Office to extend its projections for the debt to 20 years rather than 10.
