ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL 9/20: The week began on a somber note as Thomasina attended a candlelight vigil honoring Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Terre Haute.

9/21-22: You may have seen Thomasina out and about on September 21 and 22 as she delivered Hope in 8 yard signs across the Great 8th! Thomasina also celebrated her 9th wedding anniversary on the 22nd.

9/23: Thomasina joined the Vigo County Democrats at their bustling yard sign drive-through event, followed by an al fresco supper at one of her favorite dining spots, M. Mogger's Restaurant & Pub in Terre Haute.

9/24: Nobody can be in two places at once, so Thomasina appreciated campaign surrogate Don Wilson meeting with the Parke County Chamber of Commerce in Rockville while she attended a “Meet the Candidates” event at the Owen County Fairground in Spencer, sponsored by VFW Post 1405.

Later, Thomasina met with organizers and supporters in Evansville. The day wouldn't have been complete without sending birthday wishes to her favorite brother, Dr. Eric Marsili!

9/25: Things don't always go as planned on the campaign trail. Shortly after departing for a scheduled event in southern Indiana, Thomasina had to make an emergency pit stop to regenerate her car's brakes and rotors. Thomasina has logged over 75,000 miles on the campaign trail in the Hopemobile (40,000 of them in the past 4 months) so some TLC was overdue!

9/26: Thomasina visited with Jasper

area residents who voiced their concern

over the proposed mid-state corridor.

She was joined by Indiana Gubernatorial and

Lieutenant Governor candidates Dr.

Woody Myers and Linda Lawson,

Teresa Kendall for IN House 63,

and Dubois County Council candidates

Todd Cassidy and Atalie Schroering.

Atalie is pictured here with Thomasina.

Thomasina's next stop was the Huntingburg City Park for a voter registration rally on her childhood stomping grounds. As a youngster, Thomasina broke her knee in a softball tournament at Huntingburg's League Stadium while playing catcher for the Spencer County All Stars, but it didn't prevent her from earning a spot in the trail blazing film “A League of Their Own” a few years later! Thomasina paused a few moments to reminisce, share her memories, and remind us all that there's no crying in baseball!


9/28: Today Thomasina is meeting with the Nasty Women of Spencer, Dubois, and Perry counties. She looks forward to coordinating efforts for multiple campaigns.
