Indiana Senator Todd Young announces 2022 reelection campaign

UNDATED – Republican U.S. Sen. Todd Young has announced that he’s seeking reelection to his Indiana seat.

Young announced his intentions in a video posted online Tuesday.

Young touted his support of former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence and pointed to his support of Trump’s conservative judicial nominees and Trump’s push to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I believe I’ve lived up to my oath and kept my word, but more work remains,” Young said.

Young was a southern Indiana congressman for six years before winning the Senate seat in 2016 over former Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh.

Young’s campaign reported ending last year with nearly $2.4 million in the bank. No Republicans have made public moves to challenging him for the GOP nomination. Gary Human Relations Commission Executive Director Haneefah Khaaliq is the only Democrat who has announced plans to enter the 2022 campaign.
