Indiana State Senator announces campaign for U.S. Congress



Huntington, Indiana – In the Republican primary for the U.S. House of Representatives seat representing Indiana’s Third Congressional District, state senator Andy Zay, R-District 17, declared on Wednesday that he would be entering the race.

Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., District 3, declared his intention to run for the U.S. Senate in January 2023, which is when this announcement was made. In his current campaign for governor, incumbent U.S. Senator Mike Braun, R-Ind., is leaving a vacancy in the Senate, which Banks is vying for.

Zay hasn’t formally applied for the job with the Indiana Secretary of State’s office as of Monday.

A news release from Zay’s campaign stated that Zay has spent the last eight years serving in the Indiana General Assembly. According to Zay, he stands out due to his legislative background and “proven conservative values.”

“As a State Senator, I have a proven conservative voting record that shows exactly where I stand. The people of the third district shouldn’t have to guess what kind of legislator their congressman will be,” he said in the release. “Throughout my years in the Statehouse, I have voted to protect life, lower taxes, and stand up for our constitutional rights. I am proud of the work that we have accomplished in the Indiana Senate, but our country is facing national problems that are coming from Washington. The corruption of the Biden administration and the Democrats is clearer than ever. Their irresponsible spending has crippled America’s economy and destroyed the middle class. We need people in Congress who have the experience to balance the budget, secure our border, and stand up for the American people.”
