Candidate Calls for Debate of Secretary of State Candidates

Secretary of State candidate, Jeff Maurer, issued a welcome and a challenge to the other candidates who are running for the Indiana office.

“I congratulate Republican Diego Morales and Democrat Destiny Scott Wells for joining me in the race,” Maurer said. The Republican and Democratic parties held nominating conventions for state offices over the weekend. Their candidates for federal and local offices were selected in taxpayer funded primary elections earlier this year.

Maurer called for a public debate among all the candidates ahead of early voting.

“Hoosiers deserve to see how each candidate would preside over Indiana’s elections, and they deserve that debate before any Hoosiers cast their votes,” Maurer said.

State delegates nominated Maurer as Secretary of State candidate March 5 at the Libertarian Party of Indiana convention, which is self-funded by the party and its delegates.

Jeff Maurer is the Libertarian Party candidate for Indiana Secretary of State. As the third highest Constitutional office in Indiana, the Secretary of State oversees elections, business licensing, securities fraud investigation, and auto dealer regulation.
