Indy Star reporter Matthew Tully spent Election day with Team Carson.
Carson has settled in nicely to what he sees as the old-school job of being a congressman. That means working your district at every opportunity and treating constituent services, like his grandmother did before him, as job one. All politics is local, he’ll tell you, echoing congressional giants of yore, and he makes clear he’s not going to be one of those lawmakers who forgets that D.C. power means nothing if you can’t get yourself re-elected back home.
Rep. Carson released the following statement after winning re-election:
“I am honored and humbled to continue to serve my neighbors, friends and family as your representative from the District where I was born and raised.
“I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish over the last several years, but our work is not done. My focus in Indianapolis will not waver from looking for ways to help create jobs, cut crime and grow the economy.
“Tonight, I am renewing my commitment to every Hoosier – regardless of race, income, or who you love – I will continue to work hard to make things better for you and your family in Indianapolis.”
