Here’s another one we already reported: Grooms will run again in 2018, because the US Chamber of Commerce needs a reliable voice.



The only real question is which Clark County Democrat will be chosen to act as sacrificial lamb. Heaven knows, there are few (if any) credible hopefuls in Floyd County.

GREEN MOUSE SAYS: Tea leaves say Grooms will run again in 2018, dooming NA to a third Gahan mayoral bid in 2019.

It has been suggested that the Green Mouse should receive a pay raise. Allow me to suggest that is isn’t possible to “raise” what doesn’t exist.

Meanwhile, it’s another dreary press release rehash from the disintegrating chain newspaper. As such, here’s the whole kit and kaboodle.

Was the original release this bad, or is it just the rewrite?

Grooms to seek re-election to Indiana Senate

Formal announcement to be held at Big Four Station

JEFFERSONVILLE — State Sen. Ron Grooms has announced his intention to run for re-election in Indiana Senate District 46. A formal announcement is expected at 10 a.m. June 23 at Big Four Station in front of the Walking Bridge in Jeffersonville.

Since Grooms was elected in 2010, the State of Indiana has made huge strides in employment, education support, and combating opioid use, according to a news release issued by the Grooms campaign. In fact, since Grooms’ election the unemployment rate has decreased to 3.9 percent as of March 2017 from 10.7 percent in January 2010. More Hoosiers are working than ever before

It is also important that we continue to support increases in support for K-12 education in Indiana, like Sen. Grooms has over the past eight years, the release stated.

The public is welcome to attend Sen. Grooms’ formal re-election announcement, where he will be giving some remarks to supporters, friends and family.
