Cedar Lake– Following the news that an Iran-backed militia killed three U.S. troops and injured twenty-five in a drone strike in Jordan, Randy Niemeyer, Republican Candidate in Indiana’s First District issued the following statement:

“The loss of American lives in this cowardly attack is a stark reminder of the ongoing threats posed by Iran-backed militias in the region. I want to express my deepest sympathies with the families of the fallen and injured soldiers and acknowledge the immense sacrifice made by those who serve in defense of our nation.

“Our brave men and women in uniform deserve unwavering support, and we must not tolerate attacks on their lives or compromise of their safety. When this administration lifted effective sanctions on Iran, it helped create the unrest that we see today, leading to the death of American soldiers, and putting American lives at risk. I call upon our leaders to take swift and decisive action to ensure the safety of our troops deployed in the region.”


Randy Niemeyer, is a member of the Lake County Council, elected in 2022, after having served as President of the Cedar Lake Town Council.
