Libertarian Senate candidate Andrew Horning answered questions during a "Meet the Candidates" session at the Indiana State Fair Tuesday.
Horning says there is little risk in voting for him. "However, if you do take that risk and you vote for somebody different, it would not just be my voice that would be different, it would not just be my idealogy that would be different, what would really be different is that voters would have said something different for the first time in 100 years."
This is Horning's 6th time running for office, he previously ran twice for Governor, twice for Congress, and once for Mayor of Indianapolis and Marion County Recorder. Horning says he feels he could accomplish many things in the Senate. "But I understand how inside clubs control inside rules, and I know if weren't for a voter mandate that put me there I would be able to accomplish very little as a Senator."
Horning says it's all up to those who cast votes in November. "Voters have to decide how they want to live and whether they want to keep this system of inside cronies, and inside games, ruling their lives, or whether doggone it they want to shake that all up, and I represent that kind of shakeup."
Horning faces Republican Richard Mourdock and Democrat Joe Donnelly.
Other "Meet the Candidates" forums are: Richard Mourdock-August 9th from 2-2:30pm, Rupert Boneham-August 9th 2-2:30pm, Joe Donnelly-August 9th 3-3:30pm and Mike Pence- August 15th 4-4:40pm.
