In the Indiana Senate race to succeed Sen. Tom Weatherwax, Indiana Business for Responsive Government (IBRG) — the political arm of the Indiana Chamber — has endorsed Randy Head (SD18 – Logansport).
SD18 is nearly a 63% base Republican district and is the 17th most Republican senate district in the state. In 2004, George W. Bush received 70.4% of the vote and gubernatorial candidate Mitch Daniels received 60.4% of the vote. It is our assessment that this will not be a truly competitive race and that Randy Head will win on November 4. The one and only truly competitive senate race remains to be SD5 where Larry Balmer (Plymouth) is challenging Sen. Ed Charbonneau (Valparaiso).
Randy Head is a deputy prosecuting attorney for Cass County. He earned his undergraduate degree from Wabash College and his law degree from Indiana University.
