If you live in Indiana, Hostettler is doing a series of 20-25 town halls all over the state between now and the primary. Wherever you live in Indiana, there will be at least one near you. Whenever there's one in your area, the campaign could use any help you can give them in publicizing it. If you need any info about when and where they'll be and whom you can contact about how to help for any of them, let me know.

How is he doing in the primary erowe? I dont know why he doesnt get more support here as he has stuck his neck out on iraq but there are one or two bad things in his record like voting for the PATRIOT act so maybe that has put the admins off but whatever else he is much more preferable to the DC lobbyist


You should tell the campaign he needs to copy Rand Paul and make this about the deficit and the debt. he needs to hit those themes hard and he needs to paint his opponent as a DC lobbyist

EVANSVILLE — Former Rep. John Hostettler, a Republican U.S. Senate candidate, will hold a town hall meeting at 7 p.m. March 29 at Ivy Tech Community College.

Hostettler's campaign appearance in Ivy Tech's main auditorium is part of a series of such meetings the former 8th District congressman will hold across the state before the May 4 GOP Senate primary.

Hostettler's opponents in the primary are former Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., state Sen. Marlin Stutzman of Howe, Fishers businessman Richard Behney and Richmond financial adviser Don Bates Jr.

“These Town Hall meetings are the essence of what this campaign is about, a principled, honest dialogue with Indiana voters about the problems facing our state and nation, and the true solutions to those problems,” Hostettler said in a statement released today.

“Sound bytes and rhetoric will not get this country on track, but a careful examination of the issues and strict adherence to the principles espoused by our Founding Fathers will. I look forward to continuing to meet with voters across the state.”

A schedule of the meetings is available at http://www.johnhostettler.com/

Hostettler will appear at 7:30 p.m. today at Miami County GOP Headquarters in Peru, Ind.

How is he doing in the primary erowe?

It's really hard to tell. There are no primary polls. I don't know how his fund raising has been. He does really well in the general election polls, which tells me he must be doing pretty well, but I don't know how those results translate into the primaries.

I definitely don't think he has the most support in my area. But I live clear on the other end of the state from his district. And up here a lot of the anti-Coats people are backing Stutzman, who's a state senator from not far from here. I can envision one scenario where Coats wins with a plurality by having all the anti-establishment conservatives splitting their votes. Coats will also probably have the funding edge which will pay off once he starts running ads closer to the primary.

I will say this. I definitely think Hostettler stands a great shot at winning both the primary and the general election. He might not be in quite as good of a position as Rand is now. But he's within reach for sure. If people want to give money to a constitutionalist candidate where their donation can make a tangible difference between him being a US senator or not, they should donate to Hostettler.

Hostettler will get donations from me after Rand's primary. I'm going to go in for Hostettler and for Schiff if he has a chance.

Hostettler's primary is before Rand's. The primary is where Hostettler needs the most help. I'm not saying you should donate to him now, I just want you to be aware of that.
