Tuesday (June 14), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced that Congressman Frank J. Mrvan has been added to its battle-tested Frontline program, which arms Democratic Members of Congress from potentially competitive seats with the resources to execute effective re-election campaigns.
Congressman Mrvan stated, “Throughout my career as a public official, I have worked to bring people together to solve problems. That is why I have been focused in the U.S. House of Representatives to address the pandemic health crisis, make investments to grow the Northwest Indiana economy with good-paying jobs, and bridge the division gripping our nation. Given the attention of this race from conservative, national organizations, it is only appropriate for the DCCC to announce their priority for this District as well. I am grateful for their vote of confidence and will continue to be relentless in my focus to be a district-centric Member of Congress who prioritizes the kitchen-table challenges from inflation, growing the Northwest Indiana economy, and defending our invaluable steel and manufacturing industries.”
“In the DCCC announcement they said: “Congressman Frank Mrvan represents Indiana’s 1st Congressional District. Since coming to Congress, Frank has worked in a bipartisan fashion to bring people together to solve problems. Since winning the seat in 2020, Frank has secured leadership positions as the Co-Chairman of the Congressional Steel Caucus and the Chairman of the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Technology Modernization. Working with the bipartisan leaders of the Steel Caucus, he has advocated for strong Buy America requirements and steel tariffs that protect our national security interests, domestic steel producers, and steelworkers from unfair trade.
“Through his work on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, legislation he authored to ensure veterans receive critical benefits was signed into law last year. Frank also advanced legislation through the House to improve accountability and transparency of the electronic health record modernization program at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“While Frank was easily elected in 2020, Republicans controlled redistricting in Indiana and made this once-safe seat, which has been held by Democrats for 90 years, more competitive than ever before. Now, Republicans are lining up to make a play for this seat, and Frank will need to build a much larger campaign to reach his new constituents. We cannot afford to lose Frank, a true champion of the people. We must ensure Rep. Mrvan has the resources needed to keep IN-01 blue.”
