Hoosier Access is reporting that Troy “I’ll Never Vote for It” Woodruff is rumored as a potential Republican candidate to challenge Brad Ellsworth for the right to represent Indiana’s 8th Congressional District. Woodruff is, of course, the one term state representative who got bounced after having reneged on a promise to his constituents never to vote for Daylight Saving Time only to become the deciding vote in DST’s Lazarus-like journey to become a fact of life in Indiana.
Aside from the Daylight Saving Time thing, Woodruff is a hardcore abortion opponent, eyebrows were raised when his wife was awarded a State job after Troy pushed Gov. Daniel’s DST proposal over the top and when Gov. Daniels used the State of Indiana’s RV in a fundraising event for Woodruff, and Woodruff thinks the root of the insurance/health care crisis has a lot to do with Hoosiers being fat, lazy nicotine addicts with hypochondriac children (I’m paraphrasing).
2010 is a long way off, but I suppose I like Ellsworth’s chances in that match-up.
