Only Sen. Ted Cruz has announced public appearances in Indiana on Tuesday, while the other presidential candidates fan out across the map. Cruz, however, missed his 8 a.m. scheduled appearance in Westfield.
A poll by the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics at IPFW showed Sen. Ted Cruz at nearly 45 percent, compared with Donald Trump’s 29 percent. But an NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows Trump leading by 15 percentage points.
Ted Cruz will follow in Donald Trump's footsteps to the Governor's Residence on Thursday afternoon. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who rounds out the trio of GOP presidential candidates, will be in Indiana on Tuesday.
Lawmakers passed bills on topics ranging from ethics reform to "religious freedom." Meanwhile, they shot down legislation that would have helped the Indy Eleven build or renovate a stadium and that would have permitted Sunday alcohol sales.
The revised legislation prohibits providers from using the law as a legal defense for refusing to provide services, goods, facilities or accommodations. Legislators hammered out the change after critics claimed the "religious freedom" law could be used to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
