Senator Todd Young 1-5-18U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) spoke on the Senate Floor about the importance of basketball in Indiana, ahead of March Madness hosted in Indianapolis.

“So as the NCAA tournament tips off, and the games begin across our stadiums, fieldhouses and arenas – Indiana’s hardwood civic temples, as we like to think of them – I know it will be a reflection of our love for basketball, and an exhibition of our collaborative ability to host such a large event during such a difficult time.

“But what will also be on display is the other reason it is right and proper that this event take place in Indiana: we are devoted to this sport because it brings us hope and brings us together, it instills the virtues necessary to preserve many of the other features that make our country so special. It really can help make America whole again,” said Senator Young.
