Hill Climbers: Hoosier Steps Up From State Politics

Tom Williams/Roll Call

Like a lot of people who grew up in Indiana, you assume youre going to move away when you get older. But Mitch Daniels first campaign made me really proud to live in Indiana, he said. For a while, I thought I would stay here and work for him. Hes done a lot of great things for the state. So it wasnt an easy decision to move here, but I am thrilled to work for Todd Young.

The new staffer already has numerous press contacts in D.C. from his days with the state GOP, so now its just a matter of putting reporters names with faces. 

Other things he is looking forward to in Washington are baseball season (I might have to call in sick to work when the Cubs are in town), and not owning a car for the first time in his adult life. But even though everything has been running smoothly thus far, hes prepared for the possible bumps ahead.

So far, its been what I expected, he said. But as we get into the committee process and floor votes and everything else, I think theres going to be a little bit of culture shock that comes. And Im ready for it.
