A long-dormant political party is set to return to the Indiana ballot in November: the Socialists.

 

The Socialist Party USA says it's gathered enough signatures to field the sole opposition in two state House districts that are about as different as they can be. Carmel Republican Jerry Torr authored Indiana's new right-to-work law. But Indianapolis Democrat Cherrish Pryor faces a reelection challenge from Socialist Ron Haldeman.

 

Haldeman notes Pryor used to work for the Indianapolis Chamber. He charges legislators have been too sympathetic to corporations, and says it should instead use the government's power to improve Hoosiers' lives. He says Indiana should emulate France's new Socialist president Francoi. Hollande, and raise taxes to hire more teachers, and build and staff more libraries and schools.
