Rep. Todd Young, R-Ind., will run for Senate in the Hoosier State, he announced Sunday, becoming the third Republican to enter a competitive race to replace retiring GOP Sen. Dan Coats.
“Everything in my life I owe to God, my family, the Naval Academy and the Marine Corps,” Young said in a video announcing his candidacy shared first with CQ Roll Call. “The best way I can think of to give back is to ensure that every Hoosier family enjoys a better future. That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate.”
