Yesterday afternoon, Indiana District 63 State Representative Mark Messmer announced his plans to run for the Indiana Senate in 2014.

Messmer, who will run on the Republican ballot for Indiana Senate District 48, a seat currently held by Democrat Lindel Hume, talks about the difference between what he does now in the House and what he would like to do should he be elected as a state Senator:

Rep. Messmer is currently serving his third term as a legislator from House District 63. Mark resides in Jasper with his wife Kim. He is the father of four and the co-owner of Messmer Mechanical. Rep. Messmer has authored pro-life legislation, and been a voice for fiscal discipline in the Indiana House. Messmer is also Chairman of the House Commerce Committee.

Messmer talks about his goals should he become the District 48 State Senator:

Messmer joins Booneville resident Ted Metzger as Republican candidates for the Senate District 48 ballot. Metzger announced his intentions to run for the seat last week. Senate District 48 currently serves Bainbridge, Boone, Cass, Madison and Patoka townships in Dubois County and parts of Gibson, Knox, Pike, Spencer, and Warrick counties.
