Businessman and former minister Mel Hall topped the democratic primary for Indiana’s second congressional district tonight/last night. He spent his victory speech looking forward to November.

Mel Hall is wasting no time looking back on his primary victory. Though he took the time to thank those who had worked on his campaign, he spent the most time talking about how he would be in congress.

“Our district wants someone in Washington who doesn’t work for a party, who does not work for the president or work for a special interest group they want someone in Washington who works for us, and only us in the second district.”

He hit all the hot button topics in his speech; healthcare, veterans affairs, schools, the economy, minimum wage, social security.

And talked down Jackie Walorski, whom he will face in November. He ended by firing up the gathered crowd for the fight ahead.

“Do you all want to win?” “Yes!” “Do you wanna flip this seat?” “Yes!” “Do you want to focus on issues that matter?” “Yes!” “Do you wanna get stuff done?” “Yes!” “Let’s go!”
