Commentary: A debate the voters lost

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS – Libertarian congressional candidate Russell Brooksbank says he knows why his Republican opponent, Trey Hollingsworth, won’t debate him.

Commentary: How the grown-ups live

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – A few days ago, a couple of colleagues and I had a meeting. We had some problems to solve.

Commentary: Tough talk and tragic consequences

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Here’s my prayer: Lord, please save us from self-proclaimed tough guys.

Commentary: In this corner…..

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Most election years, presidential debates are a bit like the soap bubbles children play with. They shimmer for a time and catch the eye.

Commentary: A ‘deplorable’ insult

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – The contempt some politicians have for the intelligence of the voters is just breathtaking.

Commentary: Clinton, Trump and a healthy skepticism

Commentary: Strange crusade against Clinton Foundation

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Thank goodness the Clinton Foundation didn’t fund or find a cure for cancer. If the foundation had put an end to that scourge, outraged conservatives likely would demand the death penalty for Bill, Hillary, Chelsea and their extended family.

Commentary: The Donald and life after the bubble burst

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  CLEVELAND, Ohio – Moments after the Cleveland Indians captured a thrilling come-from-behind victory against the Miami Marlins on a lovely Sunday evening, a man walks through the outer concourse of Progressive Field.

Commentary: Mike Pence, shovel in hand

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has one of the toughest, nastiest jobs in politics.
