Indianapolis, IN – April 28 – The Libertarian Party of Indiana (LPIN) held its 2010 state convention in Indianapolis April 23 to April 25. The body selected Rebecca Sink-Burris to run for United States Senate. Sink-Burris will oppose Brad Ellsworth (D) and likely oppose Dan Coats (R) after the republican primary.
In a time of unmatched increase in government spending and power, Sink-Burris is running to reduce government spending across the board. Holding by the scruff of the neck a plush donkey and elephant Sink-Burris said, “The old parties have not listened. They have gone the opposite direction of what people have asked of them. They have made a mess of things and its time for them to go.”
Rebecca Sink-Burris has launched a media campaign that promises some controversial and viral messages, hoping to spark the voters to see that it is time for a change in Washington. To accompany her nomination, Sink-Burris has launched an internet campaign at www.electrebecca.com. When speaking about the nomination she said, “The time is right for a party that truly serves the freedom and economic security of its constituents; a party that truly represents the all the classes; a party that protects the smallest minority: the individual.”
