Chris FitzGerald will seek the Democratic nomination to challenge Ed Clere in the race for District 72 Indiana House.


New Albany native Chris FitzGerald has announced that he’ll be seeking the Democratic Party nomination to run for the Indiana House of Representatives, District 72.

As we eagerly await FitzGerald’s position on Jeff Gahan’s un-Democratic hostile takeover of public housing in New Albany, you can read the candidate’s biography here.

Republican Ed Clere has held this seat since defeating the incumbent Bill Cochran in 2008. In 2016, Clere defeated Gahan’s brother-in-law 57.25% (18,092 votes) to 42.75% (13,511 votes).

FitzGerald’s campaign kickoff event will be this Wednesday (December 13), 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at Karem’s Meats (3306 Plaza Drive, New Albany, Indiana 47150).
