With an underfunded but enthusiastic grassroots campaign, Shelli Yoder came from nowhere to easily win Indiana's 9th District Democratic nomination against four opponents—two of whom outraised her.  Now, Yoder is hitting the ground running in her quest to defeat Republican Congressman Todd Young.      
A political newcomer and former Miss Indiana, Shelli is not only turning heads but her incredible energy and enthusiasm can be seen making big impressions on voters as she campaigns in the small rural towns of southeastern Indiana.

In meeting Shelli Yoder I was amazed at her ability to connect with people she talked with. You felt you had her undivided attention and genuine interest.  You can see in the faces of people in these pictures that she has that special "it" and these folks will never forget the time they made eye contact and connected with Shelli Yoder.

In his endorsement of Shelli,  Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan called Yoder: "a fresh, new candidate fighting hard to put the issues that really affect our families back at the top of the national agenda... someone who filed for office motivated simply and elegantly because she was called to do so out of a personal obligation to improve the lives of others."

Yoder is a Bloomington resident and associate director of professional development at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.  Please spread the word about this outstanding candidate and help her campaign in any way you can.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
