Campaigning in 4th District, Nelson Learns from Sheila

In an article contrasting the styles of campaigning in Indiana's 4th Congressional District, the J&C quotes Democrat Tara Nelson citing Sheila Klinker as her model for campaigning at community meetings: "In a 16-county district, you can't go door-to-door and meet every person, so I'm going out to large community events." Nelson thinks her campaign message is being well received after they've heard incumbent Todd Rokita: "I hear concerns about unemployment, Social Security and Medicare benefits, especially after people hear Todd Rokita talk about cutting spending and entitlement programs. When people hear my message of reducing military spending instead of taking away the social safety net, they like my message better."
