The Indiana Democratic Party's release:
Indiana Democratic Party Chair Dan Parker congratulated Seventh District Congressional candidate Andre Carson on his win tonight in the special election to fill his late grandmother's seat.
"Andre ran a great campaign that focused on reaching out to every neighborhood and sharing his message of change," Parker said. "He'll make a great Congressman because his ideas and vision align with the values of Seventh District voters."
Carson won the special election with a decisive victory over Republican Jon Elrod.
Parker thanked the hundreds of volunteers who worked on Carson's behalf to raise awareness and promote the candidate over the past month.
"These volunteers didn't have to brave cold temperatures and inclement weather to help support Andre Carson," Parker said. "They did it because he inspired them to take to the streets and get out the vote."
