Campaign themes


In information submitted to Ballotpedia, Hale outlined the main themes of her campaign:

"As a first-time candidate from outside of the existing political scene, I see that Indiana must attract and retain good jobs today, and that starts with top quality education. Collaboration, strategic planning, and working smarter with our existing resources are all necessary to launch our next generation of young leaders, and also to our economic success as a mid-American state in a rapidly changing global economy. I plan to avoid partisan bickering and help Indiana move forward, so that our neighborhoods are attractive and affordable places to live for our working Hoosier families of today and tomorrow."[1]



Hale is endorsed by the following organizations:[2]

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Indiana scorecards, email suggestions to
