The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today issued the following statement after the Indiana Republican Party selected Diego Morales and its candidate for Indiana’s Secretary of State race:
“With Diego Morales, the Indiana Republican Party has nominated an individual who was fired from Todd Rokita’s – yes, Todd Rokita’s – office, thinks the 2020 election was a ‘scam’, wants every Hoosier voter to prove their U.S. citizenship when they vote, and would cut the state’s early vote calendar in half.
This is what Indiana Democrats mean when we say the Indiana Republican Party has no plans for Indiana’s future – just extreme partisanship.
The Indiana GOP’s last-minute smear campaign against Morales not only failed, but with his nomination, the Party sprints further away from the Mitch Daniels era and closer to a brand of politics that’s unrecognizable to Hoosiers – including many Republican voters. This is exactly why veteran and attorney Destiny Wells will become Indiana’s next Secretary of State. She’ll put forward an Indiana-first and country-first agenda— not one made from extremism and the latest conspiracy theory. There’s too much at stake for Hoosiers and Democrats are the only ones who can protect our Hoosier democracy in the future.”
