The race for the nomination continues in Indiana as the candidates turn their attention westward. Howard Schweitzer, managing partner of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, discusses the presidential primaries on the Fort Wayne Morning News radio show. Howard says that, “It’s crazy times. The Republican nomination for president may just come down to what your voters in Indiana decide to do. The electoral picture is still muddled. The media likes to make it seem like Trump is done but it’s muddled and Indiana is a swing state and you may well decide the nominee for the Republican president.” Many wonder how Indiana could matter so much in comparison to states like California, which has the largest number of delegates available. Howard explains that while California is huge, “Indiana can swing in either direction. It is notoriously difficult to poll. Trump was showing up 15 points in a poll this weekend, but it’s tough to poll. It’s an electorate that people think could swing to Trump or people think could swing to Cruz. There are 30 delegates going to the statewide victor, and then three delegates going each to nine congressional districts. In an election where every delegate counts, Indiana is in a very special position.”
