Indiana Debate Commission seeking questions for GOP U.S. Senate candidates

Dan Carden, Times of Northwest Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS — The nonpartisan Indiana Debate Commission is asking Hoosiers to send in questions for the April 30 Republican U.S. Senate candidates debate.

Questions must be submitted online at The commission recommends Hoosiers ask specific questions about issues that matter most to them.

Individuals whose questions are selected by the commission may be invited to personally pose them to the candidates during the debate that's set for television and radio broadcast across Indiana.

Questions submitted by Hoosiers also will be asked by the debate's moderator, Abdul Hakim-Shabazz, an Indianapolis attorney and radio host.

"We look forward to once again providing a truly statewide platform for candidates to present their views to Hoosier voters," said Commission President Gerry Lanosga.

"At the same time, we are proud that our debates also present the voices of the public to the candidates."

This will be the 19th debate hosted by the independent commission since it was founded in 2007 with a mission of "putting voters first."

U.S. Rep. Luke Messer, R-Greensburg, and former state Rep. Mike Braun, R-Jasper, are participating in the debate.

Munster native U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Brownsburg, so far has declined the invitation.

The winner of the May 8 Republican primary will face U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., in the Nov. 6 general election.
