Jill Long Thompson will spend today and tomorrow traveling the state to introduce her pick for Lieutenant Governor. JLT has chosen Dennie Oxley of English in southern Indiana to balance the ticket, both geographically and philosophically. Oxley is a state representative from district 73 and, based on his affiliations, appears to be more conservative than Long Thompson.

District 73 sits centrally located at the very southern part of Indiana. It is equidistant from the western border and the eastern border with part of its border lying on the Ohio River. He, no doubt, will bring a strong base from the southern part of Indiana, which JLT needs in the fall to defeat Daniels.
