We need a change in Washington. We need Tom McDermott.

“We all know Washington, D.C. is broken. So what do we do about it? We make a change. As Mayor, I have spent 18 years getting things done for the residents of Hammond. Send me to the U.S. Senate and I’ll fight for you — not special interests.”

Reproductive Rights

Women should have a right to choose, especially when their own lives are on the line. By overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court has put thousands of women’s lives at risk of dying or other harm. That’s why I will vote to codify Roe v. Wade as the law of the land.

Inflation & Spending

Like many Hoosiers families during tough economic times, the federal government needs to operate within its means and reduce federal spending to combat inflation. While inflation is a global issue, cutting federal spending is critical to offsetting inflationary pressures in the U.S, especially when there’s excessive printing of money by the federal reserve. \n

Health Care

One out of every five dollars in our economy is tied to the $4 trillion American health care industry. We’ve made tremendous progress in recent years in covering more American with health insurance, though we’ve got more work to do, especially on the rising costs of health care. We need to get soaring costs under control for Hoosier families, and in the U.S. Senate, I’ll work to do just that. It is not right that in the greatest country in the world one unexpected trip to the emergency room, or medical diagnosis can leave a family financially devastated for the rest of their lives.

Our Veterans

Politicians like to talk a lot about veterans, but action to reform veterans’ services in this country has been embarrassingly slow. As a Navy veteran who spent six years in service, including the Persian Gulf War, I can tell you first hand we’ve got a lot of work to do to ensure our veterans get the care and services they deserve. We need to work to reduce homelessness among veterans, provide better health care and connect veterans to job and educational opportunities. We also should provide better services at the VA, and that bad employees at the VA who mistreat veterans are held accountable.

‘Unfiltered’ Mayor running for US Senate

McDermott has managed to become popular in the diverse, Rust Belt city, so much so that he faced no general or primary election opponent on the ballot in 2019. But this time McDermott is running statewide in a red state in a race no pundits are labeling competitive, and it's unclear if his headstrong personality will help or hurt him.
