Young Political Candidate Eric Wolfe '04 Profiled in Indianapolis Star

August 8, 2004

August 8, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - "Eric Wolfe, 22, graduated from DePauw University in May and is running as a Democrat for the District 44 seat in the Indiana House. Wolfe says he has a good grasp of issues facing young voters because he faces them, too," reads a caption under a photo of Wolfe published in today's Indianapolis Star. Wolfe is one of several young candidates, lawmakers and aides featured in an article on the front page of the City & State section, headlined, "Young Hoosiers take political reins."

Matthew Tully writes, "Eric Wolfe, of Greencastle, a 22-year-old Democrat ... is the youngest candidate for the Indiana House this year." The reporter states, "Wolfe might not have much of a chance this year, as he is running in the Republican-leaning District 44 against incumbent Andrew Thomas. But he is on the campaign trail almost every day. 'I am looking at this from a real-world perspective,' said Wolfe, who graduated from DePauw University in May. 'A lot of legislators are already established and maybe don't (relate to) the problems of raising kids and building a career.'"
