(Washington, D.C.) – For the second straight year, Senator Mike Braun has fulfilled his promise to visit all 92 Indiana counties every year.
“When I left the business I built in my hometown to serve Indiana in the U.S. Senate, I promised to visit every one of Indiana’s 92 counties every year to meet with Hoosiers up and down the state and discuss the issues that are most important to you,” said Braun. “Though the coronavirus pandemic presented a unique challenge for traveling the state this year, I am proud to have still been able to visit all 92 counties — in a safe and responsible way.”
In an op-ed released Tuesday, Braun wrote about some of the highlights from his travels around the state, including a stop in Ohio County.
“In Ohio County, I had the honor of touring the Rising Sun Veterans Museum and meeting with some Hoosier heroes to discuss educating the next generation about the sacrifices veterans and active duty service members have made to secure our freedom,” Braun stated.
Braun also mentioned visiting restaurant owners and workers in Ripley and Switzerland counties.
“Hoosiers are resilient. Wherever I went in Indiana, I saw strength and ingenuity meeting the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and government lockdowns. In communities large and small, urban and rural, the issues we discussed remained the same: bringing down healthcare costs, getting our economy working again, doing what we can to help small businesses that have been ravaged by government lockdowns and the pandemic. What I learned from speaking with Hoosiers in all 92 counties will help me weigh in to the issues you care about as I represent Hoosiers in the U.S. Senate, and I hope to speak to you next time I’m on the road.”
