(Seymour, Ind.) - Candidates are pushing towards the finish line with Election Day just five days away.
Baron Hill (D) and Todd Young (R) are
running for Ninth District Congressman.
Indiana Ninth District Congressman Baron Hill (D-Seymour) says he will campaign throughout the district by RV leading up to Tuesday.
Hill is seeking his sixth term in office as he faces Republican Todd Young on the ballot Nov. 2.
This week, a phone survey of 400 likely voters in the Ninth District by Washington news publication The Hill gives the incumbent Democrat a slight edge over Young, 46 to 44 percent. The poll had a margin of error of +/- 4.9 percent.
Hill is hoping the trip through all 20 counties will give him the advantage come Election Day.
“Thousands of Hoosiers have dedicated themselves to this campaign by donating their time and hard work,” Hill said. “Their efforts have been so inspiring that I will spend the last 5 days of this campaign trying to match their dedication.”
Young has been travelling the district as well. Last Friday, a rally for Young was attended by Sixth District Rep. Mike Pence.
Two other candidates in the race could tilt the vote in Hill’s favor, though. Libertarian Greg Knott and independent write-in candidate Jerry Lucas could split enough of the conservatives from voting for Young.
