Indiana High School Democrats Endorses Shelli Yoder for Congress

Bloomington resident Shelli Yoder, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Indiana’s 9th Congressional District seat, has received yet another endorsement, this most recent one from Indiana High School Democrats.

Indiana High School Democrats, which is Indiana’s official state chapter of the Young Democrats of America-High School Caucus and represents High School Democrats chapters across the state, said that the choice was clear.

“Though the field is crowded with five excellent candidates, one stands out as a visionary leader who will fight for all of us,” said Nicholas Mitch, chair of the organization, “That candidate is Shelli Yoder. With the approval of our executive committee, I’m very excited to announce this endorsement.”

The organization, which proudly supports all Democratic candidates in the general election, is able to make primary election endorsements of candidates who will be especially strong advocates for students and young Americans. The executive committee issued the following statement:

“Ms. Yoder’s candidacy represents a unique opportunity to elect a leader who will truly be our voice in Washington. Ms. Yoder won’t only work for students and her young constituents; she’ll work for all of us. This primary race is especially vital because we need to elect a leader who has the know-how and will to stand up for Hoosiers in the wake of the failed policies of Rep. Todd Young. Ms. Yoder stands out as the only candidate who will be able to do this from day one. For these reasons, and many more, we are proud to support and endorse Shelli Yoder.”
