Hayhurst is in – three words that his supporters have been waiting to hear for months.  While many of us knew this informally to be the case for quite some time now, it wasn’t official since Tom had not formally announced his intentions.  However, today’s JG carries an article by Sylvia Smith which puts an end to the question – will he or won’t he?

Hayhurst’s campaign filing document – received on August 13th – can be seen here.  So, it’s off to the races – again.  I know there are many of us more than willing to devote every minute possible to Tom’s campaign.  Let’s hope the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the State party wake up this time and provide support and funds.  In 2006, the help didn’t arrive until the last minute – when they finally realized we had a real race going on in the Third District.

Souder has taken far too much of the Third District’s time and money.  His latest insane ramblings opposing the health insurance reform bills show he has not changed his spots.  Mislead, misinform, and misdirect – three words that aptly apply to Mark Souder and which he has consistently employed to distort issues.

The Third District and its citizens deserve better – Dr. Tom Hayhurst will provide the leadership, integrity, and knowledge that is so badly lacking in the current representative.


Dr. Tom Hayhurst

    I hope somebody focuses on the campaign website this time. Issues, activities — something we can link to and spread around.

  2. Pete:

    I, too, hope that lessons were learned from the last campaign. I think Tom would be a great representative.

  3. Iceironman says:

    Congrats, how exciting. Now he will have to get himself away from the progressive, liberal point of view to be elected. I think he is probably fine gentleman, but this country cant stand the likes of Pelosi, Reid, and others. If the people of N Indiana fear he will fall in step with them, it is over. And that is all that Souder has to show. If the blue dogs go with the health care, Cap and trade, etc it is over for Hayhurst. Souder will use that to tell his people, look at what happened to that conservative, gun hugging, bible thumpin, freedom democrat from Wyoming, Montana etc. They went to Washington and fell lock stock and barrell with the PROGRESSIVE LIBERALS in Washington DC.

    First thing he needs to do, go to warsaw, tell the execs at the implant business, he wont kill their business by doing govt healthcare.
    2nd go to goshen elkhart and middlebury and tell the folks he doesnt believe in taxing the rich because then they cant afford motorhomes, and doesnt believe in luxury taxes.
    3rd, tell the truth, Pelosi, and the people in Washington are discusting lowlifes telling us to cut back while they spend millions on new jets and go to NY city and Paris to endulge. HE must separate himself from congress and even Obama at times.

    Of course he needs to chose his words a little more carefully than I have.

    Good luck and If you want to know why a conservative would vote for a democrat, just ask.

    @Charlotte –

    I’m looking forward to Hayhurst running for Congress. I too hope lessons will be learned from the first time he tried to unseat Souder.

    He’s an authentic guy, and has contributed greatly to the FW community. Unlike Souder, he actually served in our nation’s military.

    I have a great deal of respect for someone like Hayhurst who had the perserverance, intelligence and dedication to make it all the way through med school.

    He will make an excellent Congressman if he is elected.

  5. Iceironman says:

    So Andy, McCain served, Obama didnt, are you sad McCain lost? Or is this a handy quality only in this race?

  6. Andy says:

    @Iceironman –

    Souder claimed “conscientious objector” status during the Vietnam War.

    He then went on to vote for the Iraq Invasion.

    He apparently had no problem sending other parents’ sons and daughters to fight and die in war, while passing on his own opportunity to do so.

    Ever heard of the word Chickenhawk ?


  7. Phil Marx says:

    “Ever heard of the word Chickenhawk ?”

    Well, President Clinton comes to mind.

  8. Andy says:


    Might as well add Dick Cheney to the list as well.

  9. Iceironman says:

    The list of hipocrites, liers, and cheats in Washington is endless, I just wish Charlotte and Andy could recognize this when handing them all the power. Axlerod??? Geitner??? Clinton, Obama, Bush (for you guys) Souder??, yet you will bow down to them and trust them. I dont think I will ever understand.

  10. Ice:

    Why is it you continue to blame me and Andy for so many things? The point behind an election is to “hand” power to the elected officials – whichever party controls. If we don’t like what they then do with it, we vote them out.

    Would you rather have anarchy? Exactly what would you have the citizens of this country do? Go without government? Candidates go through hell while running for office. The American people know who they get when they vote. You know as well as I do that there is no perfect human being, so voters end up with who runs and gets elected.

    It isn’t Andy and I who need to understand; we understand the reality of the situation. You seem to be operating from an unrealistic position.

  11. Judith says:

    Does Tom Hayhurst have a website now? A friend said she read his position on health care on his website, but I can’t find it.

  12. Iceironman says:

    Blame, no. But you have a blindness that allows you to say govt healthcare would be good. Would it be good under a repulican taking money from big pharma??? The problem with “just voting them out” is that they have so much money to flood back into thier districts. I know this is just so untrue, but look at how you react. The American people dont know who they get, they get who was running and doing the promising. Although, I do believe Obama did sum himself up as a racist and communist when he said the thing he has said, we just didnt think these things were possible in America.

  13. Ice:

    I disagree on the blindness issue. Show me where I said government health care would be good. You are putting words in my writing that are not there. I believe I have even written that I am not sure how I feel. Please do not attribute comments to me that I have not made.

    Simply because I took the time to research the so-called “driving seniors to suicide” provision does not mean I support the entire bill.

    Souder has, in fact, taken money from big medicine and big pharma to the tune of about $21,000.00. No wonder he is against the health care bill.

    Americans do know who they get when they vote – as I said, the media tears apart candidates with every facet of their lives open to scrutiny. You are just upset because with all the tearing down of Obama that occurred from the right, a clear majority of American voters still voted him in.

  14. Iceironman says:

    How did the right tear him down. By mentioning his pasture said No No not god bless America, God D. America???? Because he hangs out with terrorists? Because he was raised by communists. Because he sought out radicle socialists and communists in college???

    The media did not tear him down, they stood him up. They didnt question his theory that he would change the foundation of America fundementaly. They didnt display the pictures of him smoking what looks to be pot. They didnt delve into why he thinks our constitution is a flawed document. They didnt question his spreading the wealth comment very hard. The only reason the mainstream questioned anything is because Fox or AM radio brought things out.

    By the way, Obama is in the pocket of Big Pharma, you ought to know this as the far left is pissed off at him for getting in bed with them.


    Doesnt look like health care reform is really about saving the American people money, but in reality, is about control of the American people.

  15. TAllen says:

    I’ll be doing everything in my power to help elect Tom Hayhurst. Where do I sign up to start volunteering? I’m going to start by visiting the dem hq. Where else should I be looking?
