Looks like the theocratic wing of the Republican Party knocked off Senator Garton. That’s a shame. Hopefully whoever succeeds him as President pro tem of the Senate has his devotion to the integrity of the Senate’s processes. He really was pretty good about putting the institution of the Senate above temporary political gain, particularly, I am told, when compared to his predecessors in that position.
Update Michelle McNeil has an article on Garton’s ouster in the Indy Star. One thing about Greg Walker of which I had been unaware: he supports public flogging. Under what context, I do not know.
Advance Indiana has had good coverage of the race all along.
