Last updated

On January 26, 2009, Young announced that he would run for the United States congressional seat in Indiana's 9th district as a Republican. [11] [12] [13]

Young competed with fellow Republicans Mike Sodrel and Travis Hankins for the party's nomination for Congress and won, challenging incumbent Democrat Baron Hill in the general election. Young received endorsements from former Vice President Dan Quayle [14] as well as Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman, Attorney General Greg Zoeller, Secretary of State Todd Rokita, Auditor Tim Berry, and Treasurer Richard Mourdock. [13]

Young won the primary and general elections, defeating incumbent Baron Hill on November 2, 2010, and was seated in the 112th Congress in January 2011. [15]

2012

Young defeated Shelli Yoder, winning 55% of the vote in the newly redrawn 9th district. [16]

2014

Young defeated Bill Bailey, winning 62% of the vote. [17]

Tenure

Young is a member of the Republican Main Street Partnership along with three other Republican senators. [18] The Main Street Partnership is considered to be an association of moderate Republicans. [19] In 2013 the National Journal gave Young an overall composite rating of 69% conservative and 31% liberal, an economic rating of 69% conservative and 30% liberal, a social rating of 57% conservative and 42% liberal, and a foreign policy rating of 77% conservative and 15% liberal. [20]

2010s

In the 112th Congress, Young voted with the Republican Party 95% of the time. [21] During the 113th Congress, the Human Rights Campaign, which rates politicians' support for LGBT issues, rated Young 30%, indicating a mixed record. [22] In July 2012, Young took over as the lead sponsor of the REINS Act, a bill that passed the House in 2011 and would require congressional approval for rules with greater than $100 million in economic impact. [23]

In the 112th Congress, Young was a member of the House Budget Committee and the House Armed Services Committee. On the latter, he focused on seapower, electronic warfare, and military grand strategy of the United States. During the first session of the 112th Congress, he employed one of the German Marshall Fund's Congressional Fellows as military legislative aide. [24]

In 2010, Young stated that he was uncertain what was causing the observed heating of the planet, that it could be sunspots or normal cycles of nature, and that "the science is not settled." [25] That same year he signed a pledge sponsored by Americans for Prosperity promising to vote against any global warming legislation that would raise taxes. [26]

In 2011, he voted for the Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011. [27] In 2014, he said that it is "not necessarily the case" that there is a scientific consensus on climate change. [28]

When he introduced the Fairness for American Families Act, Young argued that "rather than driving healthcare costs down, the individual mandate is imposing a new tax and burdensome costs on middle class families" and therefore "hardworking Americans deserve the same exemptions that President Obama is unilaterally granting to businesses and labor unions." [30]

Elections

2016

Rather than run for reelection to the House, Young announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination in the 2016 election to fill the Senate seat of the retiring Dan Coats. [34] Also filing for the Republican primary was U.S. Representative Marlin Stutzman. Although Young was certified as having submitted enough signatures to qualify for the primary ballot, that official certification was challenged, and a tally by the Associated Press concluded that Young had fallen short. [35] The state Election Commission scheduled a hearing on the challenge for February 19, 2016. [35] The commission voted down the challenge with a 2–2 vote and Young remained on the ballot. [36]

Young easily defeated Stutzman in the May 3 primary, taking 67% of approximately one million votes cast. [37] He was initially slated to face former U.S. Representative Baron Hill, whom Young had defeated in 2010 to win his congressional seat, but on July 11, Hill announced he was dropping out of the Senate race. [38] Hill was replaced by Evan Bayh, who had held the seat from 1999 to 2011. [39] Young defeated Bayh in the November 8 general election, winning 52% of the vote to Bayh's 42%. [40] [41] [42]

2022

Young has announced he is running for re-election. [43]

Tenure

On January 3, 2017, Young was sworn into the United States Senate in the 115th Congress by Vice President Joe Biden. Young was ranked the ninth most bipartisan Senator in the first session of the 115th Congress by the Bipartisan Index, a metric created by the Lugar Center and Georgetown's McCourt School of Public Policy to assess congressional bipartisanship. [44] [45] GovTrack noted that during the same period, Young joined more bipartisan bills than any other freshman Senator. [46]

Young planned to vote in support of certifying the Electoral College count on January 6, 2021. Young also said he supported efforts to create a bipartisan "Election Integrity Committee" to review the 2020 presidential election. [47] While entering the US Capitol to participate in the certification on January 6, 2021, Young was accosted by pro-Trump protestors. [48] He was questioned as to why he would vote to support the count, claiming voter fraud. [48] Young explained that "When it comes to the law, our opinions don’t matter — the law matters." [48] The South Bend Tribune's editorial board wrote "Young was right to reject the move that Braun had embraced — but his words should have come two months earlier, not at the last minute. That would have been upholding his duty and fulfilling his oath of office." [49] Young, however, publicly acknowledged Biden as President-elect immediately following the official Electoral College tally on December 15, 2020. [50] [51] He was participating in the count when the storming of the Capitol happened. Upon the storming, Todd tweeted "This is not a peaceful protest – it is violence and reprehensible. It must stop." [52] Todd voted in support of certifying the count when Congress was able to return to session. [48] In the wake of the attack, Young would not comment on if he supported using the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution to remove Trump, stating that he trusted the Vice President and Trump cabinet members to "conscientiously and legally carry out their duties until Jan. 20." [53]

In 2022, Young cosponsored, with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY), the CHIPS and Science Act, a $280 billion bill intended to promote basic and advanced technology research and development, with a focus on the American semiconductor industry, aiming to outcompete China in technological fields in the coming years. [54] [55] Young had also been involved in stalled efforts along similar lines on a bill known as United States Innovation and Competition Act in 2021. [56] [57] The CHIPS and Science Act passed the Senate on July 27, 2022, and was signed into law by Joe Biden on August 9, 2022. [58]
