In southern Indiana, voters soundly reelected Democratic incumbent Congressman Baron Hill. WFPL’s Elizabeth Kramer reports.
Hill addressed supporters last night saying that there is a lot of work that he and the government have to do. And he listed several of his priorities.
“We’ve got to get health care for 47 million Americans,” Hill said. “We’ve got to become energy independent. We’ve got to get this economy under control. And we also have to get a handle on controlling spending.”
Hill also had a message for his constituents.
“I want to tell the good people of Southern Indiana and all the people in all the 20 counties that we have been visiting, that I don’t intend to let them down,” he said. “When they have entrusted me with this kind of a victory, I want to make sure that I return the favor.”
Hill defeated Republican Mike Sodrel and Libertarian Eric Schansberg. This was the fourth time that Hill has gone up against Sodrel for Indiana’s Ninth District seat.
