Cedar Lake, IN – In the wake of a heart-wrenching weekend in Washington D.C., where 250 lives were lost to senseless violence, Republican challenger Randy Niemeyer issued the following statement:

“My heart breaks for the victims and their families in our nation’s capitol currently facing unimaginable pain. We cannot turn a blind eye to the rising tide of violence, and we must hold those responsible for these heinous acts accountable.”

Drawing attention to Frank Mrvan’s voting record on crime legislation, Niemeyer declared, “It is with great concern that I highlight Mr. Mrvan’s role in voting to reduce penalties for violent crimes in Washington D.C. We owe it to the victims and their families to demand accountability and stand up for justice.”

Niemeyer continued, “At a time when our communities need strong leadership to address the root causes of crime and ensure the safety of its people, we cannot afford politicians who treat violent criminals with kid gloves. Frank Mrvan’s voting record on crime legislation raises serious questions about his commitment to our safety and security.”

Randy Niemeyer stands with law enforcement and calls for a robust discussion on effective crime prevention strategies, and pledges to prioritize the safety of every Hoosier. Niemeyer pledges to champion the cause of justice and work tirelessly to ensure that families never again have to endure the pain of losing a loved one to senseless violence.
