Blue Dog Democrats endorse Mel Hall

Second District Democratic Congressional candidate Mel Hall announced today that he has been endorsed by the Blue Dog Democrats. “I’m thrilled to have earned the endorsement of the Blue Dogs, a group that holds my same commitment to finding common ground and building shared solutions,” said Hall. “I look forward to joining members of the coalition in Congress to build a better future for hardworking Hoosier families.”

“Mel is a pragmatic candidate with a deep commitment to finding common ground. He is not beholden to party leadership and ideological extremes,” said Congressman Kurt Schrader, Blue Dog PAC Co-Chair. “Mel will bring a common-sense approach to Congress and deliver results for Indiana’s 2nd District.”

This endorsement follows Hall’s resounding primary victory on May 8th, in which he won all ten counties in a six-way race. Hall has now been endorsed by the Blue Dog Democrats, the United Steelworkers, End Citizens United, and the Indiana AFL-CIO, among others.


The Blue Dogs are leaders in Congress who are committed to pursuing fiscally-responsible policies, ensuring a strong national defense, and transcending party lines to do what’s best for the American people.
